« Wearing a lumberjack shirt (of course), the Canadian looks like a young Jean-Michel Jarre, long black hair, penetrating eyes, surrounded by analog keyboards whose buttons he mysteriously manipulates. » – Journal Le Monde 

Flore LaurentienneMathieu David Gagnon’s incomparable project, today announces the album “8 tableaux“, available March 1st and shares the track “Autriche III“.  The composer, orchestrator and musician draw inspiration from the works of Jean Paul Riopelle with this new offering.

Flore Laurentienne also announces a second date at Salle Bourgie at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts on March 24. Tickets are on sale now.

The first single, “Au couchant“, unveiled last November, as well as Flore Laurentienne’s appearance at the Trans Musicales de Rennes in France, have already aroused the curiosity of the media: Billboard’s selection of the week; “the song and the visuals of the single evoke a sensation of imposing calm – a style that draws the listener into a state of prolonged contemplation”, a review in Le Monde comparing it to Jean-Michel Jarre, and several mentions in Les Inrocks, Tsugi Magazine, Le Journal de Québec, Radio-Canada and more. According to CBC Music, “8 tableaux” is also one of the must-have albums of 2024.
