Guitarist René Lussier is one of the pillars of innovative music in Québec. A prolific and eclectic composer, he has been charting new music territories since the end of the ’70s, teaming up with musicians from all fields. Co-founder and member of the label Ambiances Magnétiques from 1986 to 2000, he has engineered and produced most of his albums. He has written music for over fifty films, either on his own or in collaboration.
