Joël Lavoie

Joël Lavoie is a composer, sound artist based in Montréal, Canada. His musical explorations sail through the troubled water of the individual and collective subconscious. Outwitting the anecdotic nature of real soundscapes through complex and textured collages, the auditor finds himself amid a soft and intense universe drifting freely in the evocations of the subliminal. Exploring the themes of the souvenir, the elsewhere and introspection, he encourages us to take a pause, a reset, surrendering to a rediscovery of the self. Minimalist music in its form, maximalist in his timbral complexity, it questions the usual codes of perception and apprehension. He has released an album Absolument (2015) on the Montréal based label Kohlenstoff Records, Cabines (2018) on Jeunesse cosmique and Souvenir (2020) on Mikroclimat. More
