Tower of Song: A Memorial Tribute to Leonard Cohen

—Winter // November 6, 2017

“My father left me with a list of instructions before he passed, ‘Put me in a pine box next to my mother and father. Have a small memorial for close friends and family in Los Angeles…and if you want a public event, do it in Montreal.”
-Adam Cohen

A year minus a day to his death at 82, Leonard Cohen fans gathered in Montreal for a memorial tribute to the late poet and musician.


We designed multimedia set pieces to support the diverse talent that graced the stage.  Our main concept consited of bringing to life the “Tower of Song” that appears behind each performer, progressing into a full tower as the show develops.

The event benefited the Canada Council for the Arts, Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, and Conseil des arts du Montréal. Leonard often mentioned the Arts Councils, whom he credited as providing essential support in the early days of his career. Proceeds from the event will be shared by the arts organizations in an effort to continue the legacy of great works.
