Danaë Ménard-Bélanger is a Quebec-based composer inspired by the symbolic world of narrative and visual arts. Her creations depict rich emotional worlds using timbre, time, and wide musical gestures. The master's degree she is currently completing explores silence, stasis, and paucity. Her early career is marked by her passion for the human
voice. Her fascination with paralanguage inspires her academic research and compositions. Since 2022, she is the assistant director of the vocal ensemble Kô and will begin a PhD on lullabies at the University of Montreal in the fall of the same year.
