Joel Lavoie

Residence: Montréal, Canada

Joël Lavoie is a composer, sound artist based in Montréal/Tio’tia:ke, Canada. His musical explorations sails 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 Montreal based label KOHLENSTOFF, Cabines (2018) on Jeunesse cosmique and Souvenir (2020) on Mikroclimat. Very active as a sound designer for performing arts, he has had the opportunity to perform in Canada, Lithuania, Germany, Sweden, Poland, France, UK and Mexico.
