Carnet de voyage - Portrait de Simon Bertrand

Enter the cosmopolitan universe of Simon Bertrand! Discovering the world shaped the music of this composer-adventurer, inspired by oriental and contemporary music, but also by pop (Björk, Radiohead) and jazz, presented in a single breath in a ritual conducive to one form encountering the “other”. Additional art forms (cinema, painting, poetry) are also invited to the party thanks to clever scenography, drawing an eclectic musical portrait of one of our most prolific composers.

Société de musique contemporaine du Québec

About SMCQ Founded in 1966 at the initiative of the Ministère des affaires culturelles, the SMCQ was the first Canadian institution to devote itself to the dissemination of contemporary music. Initially honouring its mandate by presenting an annual series of several concerts, over the years the SMCQ has undergone remarkable development through the establishment of numerous activities. Its unifying and structuring role has made it a key player in the Canadian cultural milieu. smcq.qc.ca/smcq/fr/evenement/43753/carnet-de-voyages-portrait-de-simon
