Nicolet (Québec), 1975

Vincent-Olivier Gagnon received his composition degree with distinct honours from the Mon-treal Conservatory of Music under the direction of Serge Provost. He also studied with Michel Gonnevile and Robert Pascal. He’s now pursuing creative research in microtonality with Isabelle Panneton and Caroline Traube at the music faculty of the University of Montréal, where he’s writing an opera whose libretto by Mickaël Bouffard is inspired by the emperor Hardrian’s love for Antinous.
