Genre: Rock, Progressive rock
Existence emerged in 1992 with a first concept, a rock opera, simply entitled Existence. The four musicians were presenting their creation in clubs of the Montreal area to a mystified crowd that was given a small libretto to help follow the story. There was no actor, no scenery, no special lighting. Just music played with passion. 90 minutes of pure Existence music played in two acts! For the audience who had never seen anything like that in a club before, it was quite a shock but also a revelation!
