Cirque du Soleil

创始于加拿大魁北克市附近的一个小镇-拜圣保罗。在八十年代早期,有一群各色各样的人游荡在小镇的街道上,有的踩高跷,有的耍把戏,有的跳舞,有的表演吐火,还有的在演奏音乐。他们是 Les Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul(拜圣保罗的踩高跷者),由 Gilles Ste-Croix 创建的一个街头剧团。这群年轻的表演者给小镇居民留下了深刻的印象并激起了他们浓厚的兴趣,其中就包括 Guy Laliberté,他之后创建了太阳剧团并担任 CEO。

 
 
 

个人简介

Simon Carpentier

Composer and Musical Director

Composer Simon Carpentier, best known for his film and TV scores, has worked on one Cirque du Soleil show (Zumanity) prior to his compositions for Wintuk. He took his first piano lessons at the age of seven and began his professional career in Quebec City, where his personal recording studio was next door to a rehearsal studio used by musicians working in all genres.

Simon first made his mark writing music for commercials and picked up more than 20 Quebec and international awards between 1989 and 1997. In 1989, he received a Mobius Award, an international prize handed out in Chicago for the music used in cinema advertising.

His name appears in the credits of a dozen or so films, including Ladies Room, starring John Malkovich, and he has worked on numerous TV shows for a variety of networks, including TV5. In 2000 he composed the score for the 72-episode teen drama series Big Wolf On Campus which has been broadcast in 150 countries.

In 1999, Simon recorded Amerindian singer Genevieve McKenzie’s album Shanipiap at the Sept-Îles reserve in Quebec. And in 2004, his spellbinding music was a major factor in the success of Italian quick-change genius Arturo Brachetti’s one-man show. His artistic curiosity and versatility recently led him to reinterpret the music of S. Alfonso dei Liguori and combine it with the words of Claude Péloquin, one of Quebec’s greatest poets. He has also created a series of albums of music for babies that have sold in more than 30 countries.

Simon Carpentier drew upon several sources to compose the music of Wintuk. "I went back and listened to the music of family films and immersed myself in the world of a young boy. I also explored musical genres associated with New York – urban rhythms, jazz, hip hop, rhythm and blues and Latin music in particular. In the final analysis, I want the score of Wintuk, which keeps coming back as a leitmotiv, to stay with each member of the audience for a long, long time."

Simon Carpentier was born in 1965 in Quebec.
