Pierre Laurendeau is an artist crafting distinctly unique soundscapes, the sort that fall around you like a delicate storm of colour and excitement. It’s incredibly satisfying electronic music, gorgeously smooth, but it’s also unpredictable, and that adds character – an element of humanity and realness.
In 1990, he composed "Le frisson de l'été" for the French television of Radio-Canada. Since then, he has appeared on the Quebec music scene in television productions, recordings, commercials and stage shows. Appreciated by the public and critics alike, his musical creations for the festivities surrounding the 40th anniversary of Radio-Canada's French television in 1992 marked a high point in his career.
In Paris in 1994, in duet with storyteller Jocelyn Bérubé, he won the bronze medal in the Tales and Legends category at the Jeux de la Francophonie. He also composes the music for his CD books.
In 1997, he received the Excellence Video Achievement Award in the Best Music category. This award underlines the artistic maturity shown in his compositions for documentary films; La Guadeloupe...l'île aux énergies, Le matin des Alpaqueros and the series Latitude Sud.
Composer and conductor of an acrobatic ballet on trampoline, Pierre collaborated for more than a decade with Debra Brown, choreographer at Cirque du Soleil. With her troupe, they performed on numerous stages in America and Europe from 1994 to 2004.
In parallel with his activities as a composer, Pierre Laurendeau has been producing soundtracks for youth since 1990. He has also created songs for children to be used as school material at the request of specialized houses. In the fall of 2016, he composed the music for his 72nd episode of the television series Subito Texto, which will be broadcast on Télé-Québec from January 2014 to May 2017.
On May 5, 2017, his electro-jazz EP W.E.M.3. will be released on more than 800 digital music platforms. And in December of the same year, he did it again with a second EP: "A Friendly Cal From Outer Space".
In December 2018, he released his single "Where The Hell R U" where he makes us hear his voice for the first time on EDM (Electronic Dance Music).
