Winner: Henri Colombat
Franco-American composer Henri Colombat (b. 1997) grew up in Baltimore, Maryland. Colombat’s recent works use accumulations of smaller musical objects, with characteristic personalities, which are combined to form cumulative musical identities. Through this process he hopes to provide his listeners with multiple paths of listening, each with its own sequence of twists and turns. Colombat’s work has been featured in such programs as the Canadian Music Days Festival, Quatuor Bozzini’s Vancouver lab, SICPP at NEC, LMCML, and soundSCAPE. Colombat is currently completing his undergraduate degrees in composition and theory at McGill where he studies with Jean Lesage and John Rea.
