A fire to warm the cold nights of northern Mongolia.
The story behind the piano recording heard in my song Innate.
First single from my upcoming album (spring 2014).
The piano was recorded in St-John’s church in Kolkata (Calcutta), India.

Your bare-naked feet blend with soil
The noise of the street drowning us
I wanted out”
Dear friends and listeners,
The time has come for me to release a new project with music crafted from sounds and ideas collected during my travels.
I could try to put into words what you need to know, but this new video I put together for you is more meaningful than a few words on page.
The first single will be released within the next few weeks along with a short-film.
If you share my excitement, I’d be honoured if you shared my project with your friends & family! :)
I lack practice but I’m slowly trying to get better at writing music on paper. It opens a world of possibilities. Your imagination sets the boundaries, not your fingers/hands or your computer.
Last week, I spent some time in the Mont-Royal’s forest to collect some wood. Yes, wood. Branches, roots and all that good stuff.
It’s not for some eccentric recipe I’m cooking but for
the next short film I’ll be scoring. The music calls for lots of “woodsy” rhythms.
Therefore, I sampled various kinds of sounds, noises and hits that I later processed in the Kontakt sampler.
I’ll post a video about the process when the film gets released.
I recently had the pleasure of composing music for the short animated film “Frontière”, created by a team of talented visual artists from Centre NAD.
You’ll soon see their work in some of your favorite Hollywood films and games. Expect some high-energy action!
Last year, I was commissioned to compose the soundtrack for a documentary called The New Great Game. The film studies the geopolitical issues between the West and the East, the importance of oil, sea-lanes and control of the Middle East.
Since the documentary takes place in Somalia, Libya, China, Egypt, Israel and many other countries, I was given the chance to musically explore blending ethnic and western instruments.
A lot of people have been asking me for a downloadable version of the soundtrack so here it is, for free!:
Piano recording session. New music coming soon!
