Joël Lavoie is a Montreal based acousmatic/noise/ambient/electro music composer and that, since he is aware.
Very sensitive to his environnement, his music allies the soundscapes that surrounds him to the unreasonableness of electronic and instrumental parasites. All of this made with the same intensity of a toothache or a promenade in a gondola. He grabs the organicity and spontaneous nature of natural sounds and match them to discordant and sometimes cold nature of artificial electronic sounds. The inspiration comes from numerous moments listening to his surroundings and being seduced by them. He captures them and gives them a new transformative life, otherworldly.
Improviser, performer and sound artist, he made sound conceptions for dance, poetry and theatre shows. His music brought him to play in Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom and France.
