This year I decided to make the project of my life a reality. I intend to rush headlong to make my music heard despite the budget cuts in culture affecting me personally as so many other creators and colleagues.
I launched on January 18 a crowdfunding initiative to support the production of an album of my symphonic work about Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. (Over 70 backers supports the project.) The album will be the basis of a tribute concert honoring the author known worldwide for his novel The Little Prince and his humanist work.
The Canadian Figure Skating Team is the silver medalist at the team competition at the Olympics!
Congratulions to the team members and specially to Meegan Duhamel and Eric Radford. They took the second place in pair’s short program skating with grace on Eric’s own composition Tribute for which I contributed.
They will perform again with the same choreography and music for the individual competition on February 11th starting at 10 am (time of Montreal).
The music online at Espace.mutogether with an interview I gave to journalist Frédéric Cardin about some aspects of the music project. (in French)
Here is the smal interview produced by Tracy Britnell as a TSN / CTV production.
Eric Radford is explaining the origin of his music Tribute written for the short program aiming for the Sotchi Olympic Games with his partner Meegan Duhamel. We see some of the work done in the studio La Majeure in Montreal in the summer of 2013. Also some footage with Julie Marcotte their choregrapher.
I had the privilege to produce, orchestrate and conduct the recording session.
The Orchestre symphonique de Longueuil provided the musicians.
