Joël Lavoie (Montreal, Canada) is a noise/ambient/electro music composer and that, since he is aware. Very sensible 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. Improviser, performer and sound artist, he made sound conceptions for dance, poetry and theatre shows. His music brought him to play in Montréal, United Kingdom and France.


Joël Lavoie (Montréal, Canada) est un compositeur noise/ambient/electro et ce, depuis qu’il a conscience. Très sensible à son environnement, sa musique allie les paysages sonores qui l’entourent à la déraison des parasites électroniques et instrumentaux. Le tout avec une intensité comparable à une rage de dents ou une balade en téléphérique. Improvisateur, performeur et artiste sonore il a aussi fait des conceptions sonores pour différents spectacles de danse, poésie et théatre. Sa musique l’a amené à jouer à Montréal, au Royaume-Uni et en France.
