Michael Ducharme composes a wide variety of instrumental and vocal music, including chamber pieces, choral music, and orchestral works. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Composition from the University of Manitoba, and a Master’s degree in Composition from the University of British Columbia (UBC). He is currently a Doctor of Musical Arts (DMA) student in Composition at UBC, under the supervision of Dr. Keith Hamel.
Michael’s compositional style blends influences from film music with modern experimental contemporary classical music. He leverages his past experience with computers and programming to add interactivity and algorithmically-generated content to his works. He has also maintained his childhood interest in astronomy, owning three telescopes and holding a membership of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (RASC).
