Maxime Goulet

Maxime Goulet

An orchestral suite meant to accompany chocolate tasting, a piano concerto as a soundtrack for a chess game, some operatic weather reports, a symphonic aerobic dance… With his communicative musical language and the originality of his concepts, the Montréal-based composer Maxime Goulet connects with audiences from all kinds of backgrounds and experiences, from youth audiences to savvy music aficionados.

His classical music compositions, such as Symphonic Chocolates and On Halloween Night are now part of regular orchestral repertoire and have been performed across the world by leading ensembles such as the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, the Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liège, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, the Aahrus Symphony Orchestra, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, the Houston Symphony Orchestra, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, the Vancouver Opera, the Orchestre régional de Normandie, the National Arts Center Orchestra, the Orchestre symphonique de Québec, the Toledo Symphony Orchestra, the Ensemble symphonique de Neuchâtel, Angèle Dubeau & la Pietà, and the Orchestre Métropolitain.

Driven by the desire to make music more interactive, Maxime Goulet scored more than 30 video games such as Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade, Roller Coaster Tycoon World, The Amazing Spider-Man, Dungeon Hunter, Shrek Forever After, Iron Man 2, and Brothers in arms.

Maxime Goulet is the creator of The Montréal Video Game Symphony, a multi-media concert combining the power of a symphony orchestra and the immersive and interactive world of gaming, which was premiered by the Orchestre Métropolitain, during the 375th anniversary of the city of Montréal.
