A very warm welcome to the Montmorensy app. Step into my world! A world full
of dreams and dilemmas, of melancholy and madness, of stars and symphonies. A
world in which the crows are persistently ecstatic, the bees are disappearing,

Montmorensy is a crazed composer, a piano-poet, a star-gazer, a day-dreamer,
a dizzy thinker, a silly soul, a wanderer, a wonderer… Montmorensy is a
renaissance man trapped in modern times. He likes to stay home in his pyjamas.
He has an orchestra trapped in his head! Please enjoy my music, photos and videos.
And explore my website ... I hope this app leads the way to some moments of appiness.
