Canadian composer, musician, orchestrator, arranger and sound designer, François
Couture, a man of boundless musical imagination, continues to fearlessly blend
modern electronic rhythms with subtle ethnic and even classical motifs.
With nine albums under his belt, ranging from new age to world beat to neo-classical,
his music draws the listener into the ever-changing World of his creations. And
this World turns out to be very exciting. He explores the musical universe and
its mysteries, fusing everyday sounds with string orchestras, banjo, mandolin,
guitar, and electronic sounds, all exquisitely produced and taking the listener
on a journey through the entire musical spectrum. An alchemist who likes to push
the boundaries between ethnic music, folk, ambient and electronic, François
Couture is one of those rare musicians who always amazes with his fresh and
innovative style and surprising combination of sounds. His music gets airplay
and praise around the World.
His latest album, After the Rain, along with Downtown Ride, Dal Segno, Mysteria rosarii, Yahndawa, Tape
Speed, My Little Book, Ludovica, and Quallunuak. His album,Yahndawa' merges a
string orchestra with songs of the Wendat people. It was received with much
enthusiasm, winning several awards and nominations. This was not his first
exploration of aboriginal music. The very intense and highly successful Qallunak

in Coutures shimmering melodies and orchestrations.
