Micheline Coulombe Saint-Marcoux was born in Notre-Dame-de-la-Doré, in the Lac Saint-Jean region of Quebec, on August 9, 1938. Her childhood, close to nature and filled with family song, was to influence her later electroacoustic work in its exploration of the voice (Arksalalartôq) and its evocation of natural landscapes (Moustières).
To extend her musical training, she moved to Montréal in 1958 to study at the Institut Cardinal-Léger, with Yvonne Hubert. She then studied composition with Claude Champagne at the École de musique Vincent-d’Indy, from 1960 to ’63, and with Clermont Pépin at the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal, from 1963 to ’67. In October 1982, in an interview with Lyse Richer (1984), Coulombe Saint-Marcoux credited Pépin with developing her organization of compositional form, and said of Champagne that he gave her the opportunity to write openly what she had been doing for a long time in secret.
