Montreal composer Bertrand Chenier received his foundation in composition (instrumental and electroacoustic) at the University of Montreal. His signature style is characterized by the integration of electro-acoustic sounds with traditional instruments, lyrical and minimalist language, and references to archaic musical genres (namely ancient polyphony, world music and folkloric strains). A prominent figure in the contemporary dance scene for many years, he has composed for esteemed choreographers such as Jean-Pierre Perreault, Sylvain Émard, and Roger Sinha. Elles is his forth collaboration with Serge Bennathan, the first was Absences in 2006, the second Manga in 2007, the third was The Strange Adventure of Myself in 2009.
