BIO

Florence M. Tremblay is a Montreal-based composer originally from Rimouski. In her creative work, she is interested in games, in the principles of gamification and in the transfer of models and processes borrowed from different disciplines. Her interest in interdisciplinary collaborations has led her to work with poets, visual artists, a herbalist and dancers, among others.

In 2023, she took part in New Music Concerts' MAKEWAY program in Toronto, premiering her string octet Récréation. In 2022, her piece L'individu est une espèce wins the Grand Prize in SOCAN's Young Canadian Composers Competition. That same year, she received a commission from Concerts aux Îles du Bic for a piece for choir, a commission from the Orchestre symphonique de Drummondville for a video project with woodwind sextet and, thanks to a grant from CALQ, produced, coordinated and directed her first dance and music show, Ad vitam brevem. In 2021, she co-founded La Société régionale des musiques rares, an organization dedicated to supporting and producing new music in the Bas-Saint-Laurent region.

She has collaborated with New Music Concerts, Quasar saxophone quartet, Paramirabo ensemble, the Drummondville Symphony Orchestra, the Concerts aux îles du Bic choir, the ensemble Musique Avenir and the Conservatoire de musique de Rimouski's contemporary music ensemble.

In addition to her work as a composer, she is a project manager for the Québec musiques parallèles festival, a chorister with the Artchoral ensemble and a supernumerary musician with the Côte-Nord and Estuaire symphony orchestras.

She is currently pursuing a master's degree in composition at the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal and holds a bachelor's degree in cello.
