Magic Eye [Kohl 008]


released November 21, 2013

Alain Lefebvre makes abstract-concrete experimental noise with amplified objects and lo-fi devices which he pushes beyond their intended use and capabilities. He is interested in using typically unwanted sounds as a means of reconsidering prevailing distinctions between the intrinsically musical and the intrinsically non-musical. His music embraces short circuits, 50-60Hz hum, DC offset, electromagnetic interference, transducer interference, and other perhaps unnamed analog pariahs. He has been making experimental music since 2001-2002. In 2011, he began concentrating on live improvisation, performing principally in Montreal, as well as curating the concert series “We are the Drugs” with Chris Strickland. His first album to contain solely live material, “Objects and Electronics”, was released in 2012 on K.A.N.T. N.A.G.A.N.O.'s Encodages de l'Oubli label. His most recent album, “Magic Eye”, is a collection of studies recorded in August 2013.

Alain Lefebvre fait du noise expérimental abstrait/concret avec des objets amplifiés et des appareils lo- fi qu'il pousse au-delà de leurs fonctions normales. Il s'intéresse à l'utilisation des sons typiquement ”indésirables” comme moyen de remettre en question certaines contraintes esthétiques. Sa musique adopte les courts-circuits, les buzzes 50-60Hz, les décalages de courants continus, les interférences électromagnétiques, les interférences de transducteurs, et autres erreurs analogiques peut-être anonymes. Il fait de la musique expérimentale depuis 2001-2002. En 2011, il se concentre sur l'improvisation, jouant principalement à Montréal, et entreprenant la série de concerts "We are the Drugs" avec Chris Strickland. Son premier album contenant uniquement des morceaux live ("Objects and Electronics") est sorti en 2012 sur l'étiquette de K.A.N.T. N.A.G.A.N.O (Encodages de l'Oubli). Son plus récent album, "Magic Eye", assemble six études enregistré en août 2013.
