Maxime Goulet

Composer (Jun 7th, 1980)

A symphony evoking different flavoured chocolates, a cabaret opera based on a comic book, symphonic aerobics, a fishing story mimed by a costumed clarinetist... With his communicative musical language and the originality of his concepts, Maxime Goulet connects with audiences from all kinds of backgrounds and experiences, from youth audiences to savvy music aficionados. His music is written in a contemporary tonal style and has been described as “skillful, immediately pleasant and very cinematographic”, “melodic and narrative”, “a mix of simplicity, of modernity and of humour”, and “an immediate connection with the audience”. His album Symphonic Chocolates has been described as “an off-the-wall idea that makes classical music more festive”.

His works has been performed by ensembles such as the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestre métropolitain, Angèle Dubeau & La Pietà, the Prague FILMharmonic Orchestra, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, The National Art Center Orchestra, the Victoria Symphony and the Lancaster Symphony Orchestra. He was Composer-in-Residence for the National Academy Orchestra of Canada, as part of the Brott Music Festival, and for the McGill Chamber Orchestra.

Driven by the desire to make music more interactive, Maxime Goulet scored more than 25 video games such as Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade, Roller Coaster Tycoon World, The Amazing Spider-Man, Dungeon Hunter, Shrek Forever After, Brothers in arms, Iron Man 2 and Order and Chaos.

Maxime Goulet holds a Master's degree in Composition from the Université de Montréal where he studied with Alan Belkin and has participated in the prestigious ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop in Los Angeles.
