Bob & Bill (Guy Dubuc)
Composers and Musical Directors
Composers and arrangers Guy Dubuc and Marc Lessard (aka Bob & Bill) are well known for their ability to blur the lines between genres and styles. In 2003, they composed the music for Splinter Cell (Pandora Tomorrow), a best-selling Ubisoft video game. They have also produced several albums, including Monica Freire’s Bahiatronica and Pink Floyd Redux, a collection of remixed songs from the British cult band, as well as the soundtrack album for the Cirque du Soleil show KOOZA. In 2004, Bob & Bill supplied the musical direction and arrangements for the Cirque du Soleil show Midnight Sun, as part of the 25th anniversary celebrations of the Montreal International Jazz Festival and the 20th anniversary of Cirque du Soleil. Three-time nominees for a Quebec music industry ADISQ award, the two sidekicks also created the music for several films and television series, and composed the music for Director Robert Lepage’s production Pageant de Canotgraphie. In 2008, the duo launched their first album, Crime Report, a work combining electronic and organic sounds. Bob & Bill worked many times with Cirque du Soleil to create the musical arrangements for several special events. In 2009, they composed the music for TOTEM, directed by Robert Lepage. Two years later, they composed the music for the third chapter of Les Chemins invisibles (Le Royaume de Tôle) an urban cabaret performed in Quebec City in the summer of 2011. Amaluna will therefore be their third show as composers for Cirque du Soleil.
