To François

Amore was realized in the Faculty of Music of the Université de Montréal (1986-88), and at the studios Séducson (Montréal, 1992) and Bruit bleu (Montréal, 1992). With the voices of Judith Bergeron, Daniel Leduc and Roxanne Turcotte. Texts of Love You, Olé-Léa-Léo and Trop tard are excerpted from Navires de guerre (War Ships) by Élise Turcotte (Écrits des Forges, 1984). The main source of inspiration is Roland Barthes’s book A Lover’s Discourse, with a few allusions in Olé-Léa-Léo. Musical allusions can also be found to Yellowman in L’amore: préambule and to Wes Montgomery in T’es le fun téléphone. Amore was awarded the 2nd Prize at the International New Music Composer’s Competition (USA, 1987).
