Thibault Madeline was born in France in 1992. He began his studies in the plastic arts. He developed his skills in a wide range of fields, including sculpture, drawing, photography, video and sound. In 2011, he entered the École Supérieur des Beaux-Arts in Grenoble. There he became a hunter of sounds, shapes, images and materials, which he then (re)assembled into plastic and digital works. After four years there, he finally got the hang of sound art. He then devoted himself to the practice of recording and raw editing, giving birth to his first sound works, which he exhibited in Valence and Grenoble.
In 2015 he joined the acousmatic composition class at the Conservatoire Royal de Mons/Arts2 in Belgium, graduating with a Master’s degree with distinction in 2020. There he learnt the craft of composing, as well as performing and spatialising, alongside Sophie Delafontaine and Julien Guillamat. During this apprenticeship, he developed two spatialised performance projects with regular rehearsals and precise work on ‘listening composition’. He also performed his own creations in a number of concerts.
In 2021, he won 3rd place in the GRM Découvertes competition and 4th place in the Iannis Xenakis International Electronic Music Competition. Alongside his sound compositions, he creates sound installations, composes for the performing arts and plays in the noise/electroacoustic trio André Curieux.
