Flore Laurentienne – Volume I (RVNG Intl., LP/digital)

The music of Mathieu David Gagnon is full of twists. Already the first piece on the album »Volume I« under the pseudonym Flore Laurentienne announces great orchestral pathos, but loses itself in wonderful repetitions and thus minimises the grand gestures with small compositional tricks. A kind of post-post-minimal music, as beautiful as it is cryptic.
