Cirque du Soleil

Цирк берет свое начало в квебекском городке Бе-Сент-Пол (Канада). Именно там в начале восьмидесятых годов прошлого века появилась группа, состоявшая из необычных персонажей, которые бродили по улицам на ходулях, показывали жонглерские трюки, танцевали, глотали огонь и играли на музыкальных инструментах. Эта группа уличных актеров, основанная Жилем Сте-Круа, называлась Les Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul (Артисты на ходулях из Бе-Сент-Пол). Уже тогда жители города были потрясены и даже заинтригована молодыми актерами, среди которых был и Ги Лалиберте, который позднее основал Cirque du Soleil, став его директором.

 
 
 

Биография

Éric Serra

Composer, Musical Director and Arranger

Eric Serra began to play the guitar when he was five years old. He went on to master the drums, bass, percussions and keyboards, and formed his own band at the age of 15. A year later he became a professional musician playing with such prominent artists as Didier Lockwood, Youssou N’Dour, Mory Kanté and Jacques Higelin.

The turning point in Eric’s career came at the beginning of the 1980s when he met French film director Luc Besson, who asked him to compose the score for his first short film titled L'Avant Dernier (1981) and later, his first feature film The Last Combat (1983). Since then, he has written the music for every Besson film (Subway, The Big Blue, La Femme Nikita, Atlantis, Léon aka The Professional, The Fifth Element etc.).

From 1980 to 1988, Eric was musical director and bass guitarist for French singer rock star Jacques Higelin and released a pop music album entitled RXRA – whose title sounds like the artist's name when pronounced as initial letters in French.

In addition to his film work with Luc Besson, Eric has composed the music for Kamikaze (1986) directed by Didier Grousset, Rollerball (2001) by John McTiernan, Jet Lag (2002) by Danièle Thompson and Paul Hunter’s Bulletproof Monk (2003). Between 2003 and 2005, he worked on several collective projects, producing and co-composing the soundtracks for L’Art délicat de la séduction directed by Richard Berry and Wasabi directed by Gérard Krawczyk. Also, together with Phil Collins, Eric produced the French versions of Walt Disney’s Tarzan songs.

CRISS ANGEL Believe has a distinctive look, tone and mood, and Eric Serra says his music has been written and arranged to blend with the visuals and with the personality of Criss Angel. “It’s very varied,” he adds. “There’s a lot going on and it’s all very rich. There are rock moments that reflect the Criss Angel we’re all familiar with, but other parts of the show are very classical, even symphonic in tone, and there are some ethnic, tribal passages too. The fact that the show is a kind of dream means we are inside his spirit and that gives me great freedom and an extremely broad palette.”

Eric Serra was born in 1959 near Paris.
