André Cormier’s work has been presented in Canada, the US, Europe, and New Zealand. He has written for solo, small and large chamber ensembles, as well as music for opera, dance as well as collaborative work with visual artists. His works have been commissioned from a variety of artists in Canada, the US, and Europe. In 2008, he launched Éditions musique Sisyphe (www.emsis.ca), a publishing house primarily for experimental music scores; he also directs its performing branch, Ensemble Sisyphe. In 2011, after nearly twenty years on the west coast shared between British Columbia and California, André made his return to eastern Canada, first in Montreal, and then in the summer of 2012, he returned to his native Acadie. Today, André maintains a busy schedule as a composer by fulfilling commissions and presenting work, all in an effort to greater understand what makes sound and silence so irresistible. He also finds the complement of cacao and sugar immensely intriguing.
