I started to compose the Nelligan's Poems to answer a request from Marc Boucher for a new cycle on Nelligan so he could complete his recital with the poet as the main theme. Since I had to compose three other pieces during the same period (La Lame de l'horizon, Bungalopolis and Les Ventres courageux), I only achieved to write two Poèmes: Soirs d'automne and Paysage fauve. The two melodies were created by Marc Boucher and Olivier Godin.
Dominique Côté, playing the young Nelligan in the opera Nelligan by André Gagnon and Michel Tremblay, sang one of the Poèmes at the concert « Un air de chez nous – 400 ans de musique québécoise » (An Air from Home – 400 years of Quebec music) at the 2011 edition of the FestivalOpéra of Saint-Eustache. There started the project to complete the cycle.
