Quebec bass clarinetist and saxophonist Philippe Lauzier is an accomplished improviser and composer, here in his solo debut, an epic suite that finds untreated acoustic reeds mingling with textured overdubs and subtle feedback, music that is equally jarring and hypnotic.

Lauzier, Philippe

Lauzier, Philippe: Transparence (Schraum)

Label: Schraum    
Released in: Germany    

"In the vast and fertile landscape that is the Quebecois avant-garde, it is not rare to uncover a brightly burning artist whose oeuvre has been obfuscated only by sheer lack of exposure. Philippe Lauzier, who plays bass clarinet and saxophone and is an accomplished improviser and composer, epitomizes this phenomenon in that he is both unheralded and quite active. A key member of Montreal's musique actuelle community, his long list of collaborators includes such prominent personalities as Sam Shalabi and Martin Tetreault. Transparence, Lauzier's debut solo release, is an epic suite that finds untreated acoustic reeds mingling with textured overdubs and subtle feedback. Equally jarring and hypnotic, his music sprays across the entire emotional spectrum, revealing the artist's own inner workings in the process. While Lauzier's transparency holds up for the bulk of the album, the enigmatic closing track "bruine," which is entirely hornless, finds him adopting an air of opacity a clever shift in strategy."-Bryon Hayes,
