"There is a swamp and in this swamp there are all kinds of animals and insects and bugs and in this swamp everyone plays their little music the frog croaks and it's a terrible sound and the mosquito buzzes and it does sound as nothing at all and the grass-snake whistles but it does not even make a note and the leech sucks and the sound of the suction sickens everyone and everybody complains to everybody else but nobody wants to stop because everyone likes the sound they're making the frog finds itself quite bucolic and the mosquito thinks of itself as quite funky and the grass-snake believes itself to be avant-garde and the leech thinks it is sexy and then everybody accuses everybody else to be jealous and goes to see the heron which is believed to have a very musical ear to complain about each other and to show how they all make beautiful music but all these folks start to yell yet again at each other and the mosquito bites the leech and the frog swallows the mosquito and thegrass-snake swallows the frog and the leech clings to the grass-snake and sucks its blood but there is so much blood because of the mosquito's blood and the frog's and the grass-snake's that the leech explodes and it makes a big boom and upon hearing that the heron says: Well, E flat."-Robert Marcel Lepage



"Robert Lepage has made so many CDs, STRIPs, SCOREs, and HONKs, that you have to wonder if he has some secret power-breakfast. He gets up very early to compose music for TV series (Urgences, Belphégor) before stealing away to the pool to stretch out lengthways (he wouldn't do it anywhere else). By 9 o'clock he is back in the studio with other musicians to create music for the stage, for dance (Lucie Grégoire's Hatysa) and for documentaries (Werner Vokmer's Roussil, Manon Barbeau's Les Enfants du Refus global). In the afternoon, he watches full-length films for which he will record new music the next day (Bernard Émond's 20h17 rue Darling, Rodrigue Jean's Yellowknife). He sometimes gets together with colleagues later in the afternoon to improvise or to talk about the music they want to do or collaborate on. He even puts on the occasional show in which his compositions share the stage with his strange, original ideas. Don't miss him on these occasions or else you'll have to try the pool."-Ambiances Magnetiques

Artist Biographies:

"Robert Marcel Lepage (born 5 July 1951) is a Canadian musician and film score composer.

Born in Montreal, Lepage trained in music at the age of 20, and learned to play the clarinet and saxophone. He performed with René Lussier and Pierre Hébert during the 1980s and 1990s.

He went on to write the scores for 150 films. He was nominated for the Genie Award for Best Score and the Jutra Award for Best Music for the 2008 film The Necessities of Life. Marc-André Lussier of La Presse positively reviewed Lepage's score for Iqaluit (2016) as "lyrical".

In his personal life, he has three children, Félix; Étienne Lepage (fr), a playwright; and Florence, an artist."

Her current discography comprises over 59 recordings, the most recent of which include Greffes (Empreintes digitales), On No (Mode Records), Bridge (Collection QB), Plumb (Barnyard Records), 3 and À un moment donné (Ambiances Magnétiques), Huskless! (Artifact), See Saw and Thin Air (Wig). Highlight collaborations include work with Rohan de Saram, Barre Phillips, Helmut Lachenmann, Frances-Marie Uitti, Monique Jean, Joëlle Léandre, Axel Dörner, George Lewis, the Jack Quartet and Richard Barrett."
