Emmanuel Madan

Emmanuel Madan is a composer and sound artist based in Montreal. In 1993, he completed studies in electroacoustic composition under the direction of Francis Dhomont. Since 1998, his primary activities have been centred around the reclamation and subversion or transformation of found sonic environments, attempting to regain a sense of agency and ownership within environments which are foreign or hostile. He has participated in the artistic collaboration [The User], whose projects to date include the Symphony for dot matrix printers and Silophone.

Emmanuel Madan has been active as a community radio broadcaster continuously between 1992 and 1996, and intermittently since then. His recent radio interventions include FREEDOM HIGHWAY which documents and remixes American religious and right-wing political broadcasts intercepted between 2002 and 2004, A Series Of Broadcasts Addressing the Limitlessness of Time which aired weekly on CKUT-FM in Montreal from 2006 to 2007, and the experimental multi-channel transmission work The Joy Channel co-created with Anna Friz in 2007-2008. Madan also works as an independent sound art curator, most recently on SIMULCAST 1.0b : Saskatoon, a project in which four sound artists are each invited to create an unchanging radio broadcast.
