Born in Quebec of a Breton father and a mother of Italian descent, Serge is, from childhood, steep in a multicultural world. He discovers classical, Russian, gipsy, French and jazz music. Drawn to everything that is artistic, his first attempts are at painting, sculpting and writing plays for theaters. All art forms interest and fascinate him. He searches for all things different, his perspective is simple and spontaneous. He moves from one medium to another with ease and enthusiasm. Like all young musicians, he forms a progressive folk music band, and as all young bands, it's existence is short lived. He will however perform at live shows. This experience confirms Serge's own vision of music and so, he decides to pursue solo his musical evolution. Improvisation is the open door to his beloved piano. A period of ephemeral compositions begins. Everything has to appear instantaneously, at that moment, and suddenly disappear. During this time, Serge will develop further his talents as musician and composer. His musical influences are diverse. He is intrigued by the vision of piano artist Keith Jarrett and by Joni Mitchell's sensitivity and courage. He praises Peter Gabriel and Bjork for their efforts in trying to change conventional music. Serge has great interest in the computer world. He discovers graphics first, experimenting with various software for four years, which brings him to explore forms and colors. Then, it happens: software such as Reason from Propellerhead and Logic from Emagic arrive on the market. It's the breakthrough Serge has been waiting for. He dives into this musical universe, full of sounds and rhythms that are varied and provocative. In 2003, Serge creates his first demo and then, a second one, in 2004. Prolific, he decides to become his own producer not having the patience to wait for answers from other record companies. He feels the need to introduce and share his music with as many people as possible. In 2005, Serge starts with Andrée Ann Campeau, the record company Kassure Productions, dedicated to the production of non-conformist music. His hopes are that this company will provide independent composers and musicians the means to express themselves, which is too often denied. In September 2006, Serge lauches his first album « MOODS » under Kassure Productions, distributed by Interdisc. In April 2008, Serge releases his second album « NEXT ».
