DEBUTS

IN 1958 AT AGE 7

His first contact with music was on the accordion and then he pursues his musical studies in piano at age 14.  In the early 1970s, he took part in the recording of the first two albums of Plume Latraverse: the first, TRINITERRE, on which he plays the piano, the accordion and the Hammond B3 organ and the second, PLUME POU DIGNE on which he does the backups vocals on the famous song "Quel Calvaire!" which has earned him the nickname of choir.  He also puts his percussionist talents to profit for the other tracks of this album.

MUSETTE ACCORDION

Parisian musette accordion specialist, he regularly performs in special events, restaurants and private receptions either solo or duet with Hélène Cardinal, one of the best Edith Piaf interpreters. Together they were the musicians of the BATEAU-MOUCHE at the Old Port of Montreal from 1997 to 2004.

Passionate about music technologies, starting as early as 1986 he composes and produces computer-assisted music for TV5 and CKMF. The new technological tools available today, stimulate his inspiration.

ACCORDÉON NOW

THE TECHNOLOGY SERVING THE MUSIC

With this digital accordion, I become a conductor.

All musical instruments are within my reach. It's very inspiring for the composer that I am.

Here is an improvised blues, my first video with my Roland FR-8X digital accordion

 

 

LE CADEAU

ON DIGITAL ACCORDION

Short video inspired by the gift that my wife gave me for my birthday on July 6, 2019: a wonderful digital accordion which inspired me this piece "Le Cadeau" (The gift). I created the visual with photos of gifts that life offers us throughout our journey. My beloved Hélène Cardinal, my son Bruno (Uptick), my cat Cocotte and photos of beautiful places that I shot during my trips to France and Italy.

LA VOIX DES ANGES

orchestration by Bengt Olausson

In 1998, I was ACCORDION WORLDWIDE's Canadian representative and translator. I had to write the 1998's edition report of the  Carrefour and the first title that came to me was: "Le Carrefour de la Voix des Anges" which I shortened to "La Voix des Anges" under the inspiration of Francis Lemarque who often said to his accordionist:
"I hear the Voice of Angels come out of your accordion"

"I have your music in mind"
