Frédéric Léonard graduated from Concordia University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1998 and studied Instrumental Composition with Michel Longrain at l'Université de Montréal in 1998. In 1996-1997, he studied in Paris at l'École Nationale d'Arts de Cergy-Pontoise, where he familiarized himself with the advanced musical softwares of l'IRCAM. He has shown his work on several occasions, among them Ouverture officielle d'un espace à venir (Espace Vidéographe), Paysage Réinventé Percé, organised by Champ Libre, and Les 17es Rendez-vous du cinéma québécois. He practices painting and video, composes and improvises music, with or without machines. His work could present itself as a journey from self-derision to self-effacement, from interior to disembodied consciousness.
