Cirque du Soleil

Todo comenzó en Baie-Saint-Paul, un pequeño pueblo cerca de Quebec (Canadá). Allí, a comienzos de la década de los ochenta, un grupo de personajes llenos de color deambulaban por las calles subidos en zancas, haciendo malabares, bailando, lanzando fuego por la boca y tocando música. Se trataba de Les Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul (los zancudos de Baie-Saint-Paul), un grupo de teatro callejero fundado por Gilles Ste-Croix. Los habitantes del pueblo quedaron impresionados por los jóvenes artistas y, entre ellos, se encontraba Guy Laliberté, que posteriormente fundaría y se convertiría en director general del Cirque du Soleil.

Guy Desrochers

Sound Designer

Guy Desrochers spearheaded the sound design of the Cirque du Soleil shows Nouvelle Expérience (1992), Fascination (1992) and Dralion (1999). A passionate artist, he also created the soundscape for the North American, European and Asian tours of Alegría.

During his career, he designed the sound for more than 300 hours worth of shows, festivals and gala events, plying his trade alongside a multitude of artists spanning a wide range of musical styles. While in Montreal, he worked on the sound design of four opera productions: Nelligan, Aïda, Carmen and Les Ailes du Feu, a work by composer Philippe Leduc. He also worked in tandem with a number of major artists in the entertainment business, such as Bryan Adams, Céline Dion, Chris de Burgh and André-Philippe Gagnon.

His outstanding work garnered him numerous award nominations from the Quebec TV and entertainment industry. In 1994, Desrochers received a Félix for best sound designer from the Association québécoise de l'industrie du disque, du spectacle et de la vidéo (ADISQ).

In 2001, he completed the sound design for the show Cheval, a production by Cheval-Théâtre, an equestrian circus company founded by Gilles Ste-Croix.

In 2002, Cirque du Soleil sadly learned of the passing of Guy Desrochers. However, thanks to the Dralion show, his work is still very much alive.
