• About my electronic songs recognized by quality composers. Here is the most beautiful compliment. It is about my musical production during the 2003-05 period :

"In the course of a lifetime, one encounters very few major musical talents. Vincent Bergeron is one of those few, a unique composer who is at the forefront of musical thinking. I respect his music professionally and I admire it personally. I find it deeply impressive on every level--musical, intellectual, and emotional."

Presentation letter in brief......................................

My diverse knowledge in arts is only one of my main strengths. Acousmatic (electroacoustic) songs composition is building my artistic intelligence since 10 years. My great listening capacity (musical and social) and my experience as a writer are making me better in French.

First interested by a career in cultural journalism, I completed a certificat in public communication at Université Laval. After, I learned pragmatic tricks a professional writer should know by following the short program in writing communication at l'Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières. Curious, I also studied in a multidisciplinary program.
