The Sound Architect speaks to excellent composer Luc St. Pierre.
Born in Ottawa, Canada, Luc St. Pierre studied piano for many years while performing in a variety of musical ensembles before entering the Université de Montréal to pursue his interests in orchestral and electroacoustic composition with Alan Belkin and Marcelles Deschesnes. He subsequently worked in both the U.K. and Belgium collaborating with several world-renowned producers to develop his eclectic and highly original style. Nominated three times for a prestigious Gémeaux Award in the category of Best Music For Drama, Luc St. Pierre’s work can also be heard in the Academy Award and Director’s Guild of America nominated documentary feature, “PRISONER OF PARADISE”.
His recent scores include the film “THE LADY IN NUMBER 6″, winner for Best Documentary Short at the 86th Academy Awards, and the action-stealth video game “THIEF” for Eidos-Montréal and Square Enix. Prior to his film composing career, Luc St. Pierre wrote and produced music with the alternative techno/rock bands ANGELS AND QUARKS co-produced by Gilles Martin with remixes by Gareth Jones (Depeche Mode), and CHIWAWA, recorded at Wayne Hussey’s (The Mission) personal studio and mixed by Steve Whitfield (The Cure). Luc St. Pierre’s work continues to draw on an eclectic range of musical influences, allowing him to create masterful compositions in genres as diverse as trip-hop and electronic soundscapes, to classical orchestral scores of great sophistication and beauty.
