Sebastien Lavoie

Sebastien Lavoie regards himself as belonging to a new generation of composers/ producers who use the laptop as a musical instrument. This compositional tool allows him to develop his musical skills as much on stage as in the studio. Since 2015, Ableton’s PUSH and the Novation’s LaunchControlXL have revolutionised his composition and performance practice. As a sound explorer, he travels through the diverse avenues of noise and music in order to capture and compose novel sounds. Sebastien is a 2014 winner in the CEC’s annual JTTP project. This national association supports the work of Canadian-based young and emerging sound artists. He is in the final stages of a PhD at the University of Huddersfield.
