From the Buddhist monastery to the windswept mountaintops, Three Quests weaves a story of mystery, drama and transcendence. It was also a very interesting soundtrack to create, where I focused on instruments of Buddhist tradition including an assortment of bells and gongs, mantras and chanting, and some really large horns.
The film is screening along with 8 other shorts on May 5. Check out tickets and more info about the festival!
In this eccentric road trip movie, three brothers battle it out against the maleficent Mr. Norsecotton who chases them to claim the vintage car they inherited. I worked closely with co-composer Aaron Labbé and director Zach Silverstein to create an appropriately goofy and dramatic score. The Benz is getting another Toronto screening, this time at indiefilmTO Festival on February 17! Grab some tickets.
It's happening! We Are Like Dust will play at Ryerson University Film Festival. The short film is directed by Laura Thurlow, and features an original score I've been concocting over the past couple of weeks. In this film we follow Bea's journey to redemption as she faces her past, fighting through obsessions and remorse in dreamlike (or perhaps nightmarish) sequences.
I made use of some unusual elements in the score, including lots of glass bowls, extended cello technique, and musical train wheels. No really, train wheels make music.
This site replaces the music section of osar.fr. The latter website sported an exceedingly austere design, which gave rise to a such a tide of negative feedback that I finally crumbled under the weight of inflammatory emails ("your website sucks"), and created this new fancy music showcase, featuring a cat.Some really nice tools that were used in the process:
Pierre Cusa, programmer & composer.
Film scoring, electronic and classical music production,
audio software development for musicians.

I am currently based in Toronto and Montreal.
Most of my tracks are digital productions, made using a bunch of virtual instruments and synthesizers, but also some good old instrumental recording sessions. Other techniques used include field recordings, deep sampling of singular instruments and objects, algorithmic composition, experimental DSP algorithms...
