Since the age of four, Sophie Delafontaine has loved and discovered several genres of music through her dance practice. She stumbled upon acousmatic music while dancing and moving. At age 20, she left Switzerland on a piece of advice from Sylvette Vezin and moved to Belgium where she studied acousmatic composition at the Conservatoire royal de Mons / Arts2 — École supérieure des arts (Mons, Belgium) with Annette Vande Gorne, Philippe Mion, and Ingrid Drese. She obtained her master’s degree in 2014. She gradually understood that what drives her interest for acousmatic art — the concrète approach — is the relationship between acousmatic music and contemporary dance she was taught through Alwin Nikolaïs’s philosophy.
