New video of the Tour du Mont-Royal Brébeuf

March 31st, 2014

Again, I have been asked to make the music of the new ad of the Tour du Mont-Royal Brébeuf (formerly known as the Tour des Trois sommets). Here is the result.

The advertisement of the Tour du Mont-Royal Brébeuf, version 2014. Video: Jean-Martin Desmarais, music: Frédéric Chiasson.

The challenge here was to mix some synthetic sounds with orchestral instruments (who were also synthetic, actually). I had some concerns about the mix at the beginning, but at the end I was quite proud of the result. What is important is that it gives you the urge to run!

Yes, it has been a long time I haven't written on this site. Please forgive me! Now, I need to finish the music for the short movie Nous sommes eux (We are them) by Maribel Badoya, a great series of arrangements for Alexandre Da Costa (for his concert Un Stradivarius à l'opéra) and finally the course on Sibelius software that I will give for the Conseil québécois de la musique... For the moment, I still sleep my nights!

It has been a great while that I haven't written on my site. Don't worry: as usual, it is because I am very busy. I finish for the moment an arrangement of Vitali's Chaconne for Alexandre Da Costa. I will write you back about it soon...

While I travel to celebrate Christmas with the family, I take some time to wish you a wonderful Christmas holiday. I hope that your year 2014 will be filled with great moments to share.

As a gift, I leave you a short film from Roger Blais, Voix d'Acadie (Acadia Voices), who recorded the performance of the men choir of Université Saint-Joseph from New Brunswick, during the 50s. While they do not sing any Christmas carol, these are still superb voices.

If you look for something more psychotronic, I leave you with Brenda from Le Coeur a ses raisons (Heart has its reasons), who gives you her punch recipe. Thanks to Toma Iczkovitz for the discovery and like Brenda would say so nicely, "Joyeux Naël" or "Marry Christmas"!

From Le Coeur a ses raisons, Brenda gives you her punch recipe! "Joyeux Naël!"
