CAREER GOAL:

Create original music for various musical formations (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. I can speak and write fluently in both languages: French and English.

“Eric F Lemieux did an amazing job writing the music score for “The Ante”. Composing over 30 minutes of original material for a 18-piece ensemble orchestra is no easy feat, especially on tight budget and schedule. Lemieux pulled it off with superb results. The score received great reviews and really helped the film stand out from the crowd. Lemieux has a proven track record of scoring highly efficient orchestral work on a feature film. The best is yet to come for this up-and-coming composer. We recommend him highly.” Peter Proffit Pictures

Review

Michael Barone, Minnesota Public Radio, The New Releases, March 25, 2010

Eric F Lemieux, "Three Suites for Guitar": From French Canadian soil, a modern fusion of styles here, always based on a poetic urge … intimate, individualistic, and conveyed with inviting immediacy.
