Louis Dufort (born July 29, 1970) is a Canadian composer of electroacoustic music. He was born and lives in Montréal, Canada.

Dufort has a bachelor's degree in electroacoustic music composition from the Université de Montréal as well as a master's degree from the Conservatoire de musique du Québec à Montréal, where he received a first prize with distinction. But university studies have not altered his iconoclasm and originality: his passion for electronic music and his love of cinema, painting and contemporary dance lead him to incorporate elements in his composition that are drawn from beyond music.

He currently divides his time between composing for the Marie Chouinard contemporary dance company (he composed the music for the choreography of Le cri du monde, which premiered in Toronto on March 21, 2000), his work with the artistic committee of ACREQ, and the creation of hybrid and unbridled musical experimentation.

His works have been presented in Montréal and in Europe, especially in France. In 1996 he won the First Jury Prize at the fifth Concours international électro-vidéo clip organized by ACREQ for his work entitled Vulvatron 2000 (1994). In 1997, he received First Prize from the SOCAN Foundation for Concept 2018957 (1995) and was a finalist at the Concours international Noroit-Léonce Petitot in Arras, France.
