Solitude, relationships, and imagination: inside this Montreal musician's first movie score
Montreal's Jean-Michel Pigeon walks us through his process
Montreal-based musician Jean-Michel Pigeon has been immersed in music for a long time, most notably with his band Monogrenade. Now, he's taking on a new challenge — scoring the upcoming film Crash Test Aglaé. For Pigeon, this means collaborating with other musicians, spending a lot of time in the studio, and losing himself in the images he sees on a screen.
"When I watch a great movie or a great show, you forget your life for a little time," he explains.
In this segment directed by Guillaume Alcaraz, we travel to Montreal to watch Pigeon at work, witnessing a glimpse of a score as it's built — note by note.
