    Philippe Lauzier's solo music explores sounds from non-Western sources and playful extended techniques. Creating complex drones and delicate spacious moments, there is an emergence of micropolyphonies from which a certain hypnotic feel grabs the listener. With A Pond in My Living Room, He concentrates on bass clarinet with occasional preparations, also using sampling to playback and overlap sounds from the clarinet.


    Dans sa musique solo, Philippe Lauzier explore des sons issus de sources extra-occidentales et de techniques étendues ludiques. Tout en créant des drones complexes ou encore de délicats moments spacieux, il y a une émergence de micropolyphonies qui transporte l'auditeur dans une sorte d'hypnose. Sur son album A pond in my Living Room, il se concentre sur la clarinette basse avec d’occasionnelles préparations, faisant recours à l’échantillonnage pour rediffuser et superposer en couche les sons de sa clarinette,

<< When the grace vibes between the cuts, as in the case of this release, the style fences drop down, the potentialities of the work become infinite and the audio involements become total >> [ Neural ]

<< 8 out of 9 >> [ Blow up ]

<< a psychedelic and dreamlike state due to its hypnotic, microchanging nature and blurred out arrangement of overtones. Lovely! >> [ Nitestylez ]

<< penetrating sounds sculptures >> [ Nieuwe Noten ]

<< The results are quite beautiful, exquisite and subtle drones, surfaces, and pulsations which have a benign effect on the listener [...] Excellent. >> [ The Sound Projector ]

<< Tout au long de cette plongée en eaux troubles, Lauzier maîtrise son sujet [...] Sa technique de la clarinette (c’est bien ce que j’avais entendu avec Normand, Martel et Tétreault) est aussi impressionnante que son travail avec les cithares et le laptop. >> [ Le son du grisli ]

<< In the four pieces he presents here he uses a multiple tracks of his playing mixed together and he created a true beauty here. >> [ Vital Weekly ]

<< MESMERICO. >> [ Rockerilla ]

<< affascinante album. >> [ OndaRock ]

<< Le clarinettiste fait preuve d’une maîtrise de son instrument qui s’apparente à une méditation zen, un exercice qui aiguise la concentration et qui met de l’air entre les idées. >> [ Le Voir ]
