Born in Montréal in 1957, guitarist René Lussier is a leading figure in innovative Quebecois music. A prolific and eclectic composer, he has been initiating new musical projects since the 1970s, bringing together musicians from all horizons (Conventum, Chants et danses du monde inanimé, Les Granules, Dur noyau dur, Le Trésor de la langue, Keep the dog, Fred Frith guitar Quartet, Bobelo, among others ). He has a passion for improvisation and for several years led workshops dedicated to this approach (in Europe, Canada, and at the Conservatoire de Musique de Montréal). Alone or in collaboration, he has composed more than 60 film soundtracks as well as the soundtrack to the extraordinary Moulin à Images by Robert Lepage (2008-2012). He also collaborates with visual artists to make multimedia works. For the last 12 years or so, he has turned his hand to song (2 CDs: Le prix du bonheur, 2005 and Toucher une âme, 2013). In addition to producing his own projects, he now produces those of other artists, such as the ambitious and surprising Voyage d’hiver by Keith Kouna, after the work by Franz Schubert (2014).
