After studying music at the Conservatoire de musique du Québec à Montréal, Dompierre first became prominent as a performer of jazz-inspired chansonnier pop. He soon abandoned this to pursue classical composition and conducting, working with orchestras such as the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, the Quebec Symphony Orchestra and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.
As a film score composer, he is a two-time Genie Award winner for Best Original Score, winning at the 6th Genie Awards for Mario and at the 7th Genie Awards for The Alley Cat, and a two-time winner for Best Original Song, winning at the 18th Genie Awards as cowriter with Luc Plamondon of "L'Homme idéal" and at the 21st Genie Awards for "Fortuna".
