Cirque du Soleil









Cirque du Soleil

所有的一切,都是從加拿大魁北克市附近的小鎮 Baie-Saint-Paul 開始。在那裏,在 80 年代早期,有一隊充滿特色的樂隊在街頭流浪,踩高蹺,表演雜耍,跳舞,表演噴火和演奏音樂。他們是 Les Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul(Baie-Saint-Paul 街頭浪人),是一個由 Gilles Ste-Croix 建立的街頭表演團隊。這群年輕的表演者給小鎮的居民留下非常深刻的印象,包括後來成立太陽劇團並出任 CEO 的 Guy Laliberté。



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.
