She made her debut with the album Pianoscope in 2010, but the general public discovered her via Jean-Marc Vallée’s films Dallas Buyers Club (2013) and Demolition (2016) and, more recently, the trailer of the Quebec director’s acclaimed HBO series Big Little Lies (2017).
An artist of Polish Jewish origin who grew up between Paris and Montreal, Stréliski was steeped in music from the two continents during her childhood. From an early age, she was interested in classical artists such as Chopin and Satie as well as film music composers like Zimmer, Glass and Nyman. Recruited by the advertising community at the onset of the new millennium, the musician won several awards for her creations in that field: the CRÉA for Best Quebec campaign in 2007; the Best Pan-Canadian advertising music award at the Toronto Marketing Awards. Nevertheless, she heard the call of free creation, which led her to recording the more personal Pianoscope.
