About the event
Metal vocalist since 1991 (Necrotic Mutation) and throat singer (Tibetan, Mongolia and Inuit throat-singing) since 1996, Sébastien Croteau masters an impressive number of extreme vocal techniques. He began teaching metal voices and throat-singing 15 years ago. Since then, he trained hundreds of metal vocalists and voice talents around the world and he is renowned to be an expert in vocal distortion, extreme sounds and creature voice design.
It is thanks to these techniques that he began to work for video games companies in 2005. Since then, he has specialized in vocal stunt work and sound creation of the voices of monsters and creatures. He has worked on more than thirty video games (including Gotham Knights, Meet your Maker, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, Dead by Daylight, Dungeons and Dragons : Dark Alliance, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Far Cry 5, Rainbow Six Siege: Outbreak, Prince of Persia – The Forgotten Sands and Assassin's Creed 2) and has lent his voice to more than 200 characters.
For the past few years, he has been a casting director and a voice director for various projects. He also teaches voice acting at INIS (National Institute of Sound and Image) in Montreal. In 2018, he created a company called The Monster Factory, a talent agency who specializes in extreme sounds, vocal stunts and creature/monster voices with more than 100 metal vocalists/voice talents around the world.
