Claude Péloquin

Canadian poet, writer, singer, songwriter, screenwriter and director born in Montreal on August 26, 1942. After founding the improv group L'Horloge in 1964 with Serge Lemoyne, Yves Hébert and Jean Gauguet-Larouche, Claude Péloquin participated in the development of a performance show with the group Le Zirmate. He wrote the lyrics to several songs, the most famous of which are Monsieur L'Indien and Lindbergh. The latter, composed for the show L'Osstidcho and performed by Robert Charlebois and Louise Forestier, earned Peloquin the Félix-Leclerc Award for "Best Canadian Composition of the Year" in 1969. In 1971, he wrote the lyrics to his first solo album (Laissez-Nous Vous Embrasser Où Vous Avez Mal), which featured the music of Jean Sauvageau; a striking contemporary work traveling between electronics and more traditional music. In the mid-1980s, he returned to the songwriting through Robert Charlebois, whom Peloquin fed with lyrics for the album Super Position, but the album has had only limited success. After living in the Bahamas in the 1990s, he returned to Quebec and recorded Tout Le Monde Au Ciel, a new album of songs and poems. Claude Péloquin died on november 25, 2018 at night, at the age of 76. He had generalized cancer.
