Clarinetist, composer, and comic-strip artist, Robert Marcel Lepage has been making his own special contribution to Montreal’s musical scene for more than thirty years.

He has composed the music for more than a hundred soundtracks for documentaries (Jacques Godbout, Léa Pool, Alain Belhumeur, Jean Beaudry, and Manon Barbeau), feature-length films (Fullblast by Rodrigue Jean), animated films (Pierre Hébert and Francine Desbiens), and television (the series Urgence, Réseaux, and Belphégor).
