Create original contemporary music (chamber or symphonic instrumental music, solos, duets, electroacoustic, film music), teach and perform musical pieces. Versatility and enthusiasm reinforce my commitment to quality and authenticity.
Eric Lemieux is a composer, guitarist and Canadian poet who creates
original music for all types of ensembles. He started playing guitar at
age 12 and has written several soundtracks for film. His influences are
many and run the gamut from Renaissance intimate Gazpar Sanz’s
counterpoints to contemporary electro-symphonic and from classical forms
to flashy modern fusion styles like Alan Holdsworth’s. He aims at
bringing together and drawing parallels between styles and universes
that may at first appear at odds with one another. His diversified
musical studies have earned him a Masters’ degree in musical composition
under the supervision of Alan Belkin at the University of Montreal.
Past teachers have also included Jacques Hétu, Michel Longtin and Jose
Evangelista. Some of his guitar music has been published in
distinguished guitar magazines around the world, amongst others in the
German publication “Akustik Guitarre”. He teaches music and works on
many creative endeavors in Montreal.
