Vincent Bergeron

Since 2004, Vincent composes music for several instruments including clarinets, saxophones, flutes, oboe, musette, accordion, trumpet, trombone, tuba, violin, cello, double bass, digital bass, harp, Russian gousli, luth, guitars of all kinds in an orchestra, voices (song, throat singing and acapella), drums and traditional percussions of all kinds, marimba, vibraphone, piano, traditional instruments from China and Japan, Indian tabla, organs, electronic and electroacoustic keyboards, acousmatic noise, acoustic noise….

This experience, Vincent himself developed it. He manipulated all kinds of recordings with softwares used as tools for a fraction of second precision in all of his available compositions. For years now, Vincent experimented with great patience and will to achieve great results. All the different sound possibilities and harmonies available to human ears (so limited compared to other species, but then why so many ideas are still left behind in 2009).

Fascinated by music composition to an acceptable limit, Vincent always think in terms of quality. By personal challenge, he finds new problems in his music because he always want to do better the next time, even if this may mean to lose more and more pop listeners. For him, music is an art form (and can also be about entertainment) and he wants to be the best he can be at it. That is this great will and desire to be creative that he would love to bring to cinema in particular (to make a change and avoid mastered power sounds, a near-obligatory road that is becoming predictable in cinema). Theater productions is also an avenue for Berger Rond music. Becoming a musical arranger for new pop bands too. Vincent Bergeron works on recordings put on digital files (.wav, .aif, flac) and even suggest new musical structures (obviously much more simple in this context).
