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 orchestras such as the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestre métropolitain, Angèle Dubeau & La Pietà, the Prague FILMharmonic Orchestra, theVancouver Symphony Orchestra, the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, The National Art Center Orchestra, the Victoria Symphony. Maxime Goulet 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, The Amazing Spider-Man, the Dungeon Hunter series, Brothers in Arms, Iron Man 2 and Shrek Forever After.
