Suzanne Binet-Audet studied organ at the Conservatory in Montréal, and later perfected her technique with Jean Langlais in Paris. At the same time, she became fascinated with the ondes Martenot, and enrolled at the Conservatoire where she worked with the instrument’s inventor, Maurice Martenot, eventually earning a Première Médaille. She also received instruction from Jeanne Loriod at the École Normale Supérieure de Paris, and was awarded a concert diploma from the institution. Since then, Binet-Audet has appeared in concert as a soloist, and as a member of both the Parisian Sextuor Loriod ondes Martenot ensemble, and the Ensemble d’ondes de Montréal, the latter since its foundation in 1976. She has performed with various orchestras and music ensembles in Canada, the United States, Japan, and Europe. For the past ten years, she has composed for the stage, and performed as an improviser in multimedia events.
