To create is to weave a link, a portal. The artist, through his life and work experience, emerges as such a link or portal. The more translucent the link is the more we understand the art and are able to cross the borders of consciousness.
— Gabriel Thibaudeau

Born in 1959 the Canadian composer, pianist and conductor Gabriel Thibaudeau studied piano in Montreal at the Vincent D'Indy music school and composition at l'Université de Montréal.  He started work at the age of 15 as a pianist for ballets.
