François Couture, All-Music Guide about Casse-tête de l’Existence :

"No matter how versed you are in experimental music, I can honestly write that you have never heard something quite like Vincent Bergeron's Casse-tête de l'Existence (Puzzle of Existence). Imagine if you will, plunderphonics coupled with progressive rock; sample deconstruction and sound collage as techniques to assemble hiccupping operas. What Bergeron does is rip samples from every possible source, including but not limited to records of free improvisation, musique concrete, contemporary music, folk music, and world music. He slices and dices them into tiny pieces, then, like a mosaic artist, glues these tiny pieces together into jagged but very well structured songs, for which he writes lyrics and melodies. To make sure that the vocals fit in with the rapid-fire claudicating style of the music, he also chops up and reassembles his voice. Since he sings in a half operatic, half mock-theatrical voice, and his music is rich in strings, percussion breaks and certain grandeur, the result sounds a lot like a bloodbath at a prog rock convention -- or the digital bastard child of Peter Gabriel-era Genesis and Fantômas. (...) If the basic material tends to give a unique orientation to each piece, it seems there is no limit to what Bergeron can make his samples do. Profoundly disturbing but ceaselessly fascinating, Casse-tête de l'Existence is oddness to the umpteenth degree. Obviously, the world is not ready for this."
