Chantal Michelle is a sound artist and composer who works with acoustic instrumentation, synthesis, field recordings, and voice to form immersive, densely textured aural landscapes. Her work is characterized by tension, disparate sounds, and non-linear arrangements. It has been realized as multichannel installations, live performances, and recorded material.
Her discography includes Broken to Echoes (Somewhere Between, 2023), Pulse, Puls-ar, Procession (Dinzu Artefacts, 2022), Night Blindness (Quiet Time, 2021) and the collaborative Aunis (Injazero, 2019) as well as inclusion on multiple compilations. Her releases have received critical acclaim from The Wire, The Guardian, Groove, and Electronic Sound, amongst other publications. Notably, The Wire called Night Blindness “a dynamic and engrossing narrative” and The Guardian praised Aunis as “a virtually unprecedented palette of synth sounds.”
Solo and collaborative performances of her work have been held internationally, including at MUTEK (MX), KM28 (DE), IKLECTIK (UK), Public Records (US), Het HEM (NL), and Morphine Raum (DE). As a collaborator, she has worked with legendary Mexican free jazz musician Germán Bringas, clarinetist Michiko Ogawa, violinist Alina Maldonado, and multi-instrumentalist Brian Allen Simon. In 2022 she founded the experimental noise project ⎤⎤⎤alongside multidisciplinary artist Grace Villamil. She is currently a Masters of Fine Arts candidate in Music/Sound at Bard College, Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts.
