"It's one of those rare albums that surprises and delights in the most

unexpected ways, and seems to totally defy categorization [...]

 [...] "L'artiste canadien Lauré Lussier nous transporte dans un conte des milles et une nuits,

[...] "We are writing because Bruce played Lauré Lussier's album on  Grey Clay Radio. It is one of the best albums we have heard this year. We loved it. 

SRSLY <3

If you get a chance, please tell Lauré he is brilliant!

Appreciatively,

Pelléas & Mélisande

Pelléas

Lauré Lussier's second orchestral electroacoustic album on Adventurous Music  (Leipzig, Germany).

This album is based and was inspired by Maurice Maeterlinck's (1862-1949) symbolic and tragic play "Pelléas et Mélisande".

Mélisande, a young woman, is found lost in the forest by Prince Golaud. He will take her to the castle of his grandfather, King Arkel where Golaud will take care of her and marry her. She and Pelléas, Golaud’s half-brother, fall in love with one another, which arouses a mad jealousy in the husband.

Maurice Maeterlinck's play is a timeless and symbolist drama. The major dramaturgical characteristic of the play is darkness and penumbra; the weak luminosity covers the vulnerability of two secret lovers who should not be seen... It is better to rise to the degree of symbolist vision to see through and beyond.

The music was composed first, with the specific dialogs in mind. The musical motifs associated to the play’s characters’ strengths, weaknesses and inner thoughts have been composed in relation to the different themes and situations that evolve throughout the work.

Lauré's third orchestral electroacoustic album from the German label Adventurous Music (Leipzig, Germany).

Three waltzes.

At first glance, they look simple.  

As the music unfolds, they slowly reveal their true selves in their entire complexity.

Lauré's 5th orchestral electroacoustic album from Adventurous Music (Leipzig, Germany).

"An illicit Symphony which should have never been created.... But it happened".

Strange Symphony

 

Amidst the relics of history, this old tale was unearthed from the ethereal veils of a very long time past…

 

Alone in the silence of a concert hall's sacred space,

A composer and an orchestra dance and lust they embrace.

Melodies and harmonies intertwine, a flaming affair bursts and unfurls,

Their bodies in longing and breath a short, in euphony they at last swirl.

 

At passion’s height, both nearly appeased, 

In a quaver’s moment, they conceive.   

Struck, thoughts speed and flash, « what to do? »

In desperation, he chooses not to believe.

The composer hastily flees, never again to be seen.

 

A revolting departure, a departure that grieves.

Left behind is the orchestra, yearning, bereaved…

 

Hidden in shameful remorse for a long melancholic breve of sorrow,

The quietened orchestra has nestled an illegitimate creation.

Feared is a haunting elegy of lost tomorrows…

 

Many dusks following, in that hallowed concert hall’s sacred space, 

Both balcony and mezzanine fill with an eerie hush.

The gathered crowd, colossal, whispers tales of disgrace,

Eager to see and mock the orchestra’s humiliated blush,

Ready to hear then curse this illicit creation about to be shared.

 

In the twilight of the peculiar, where oddities find their niche,

Beneath the crescent moon’s baleful glow,

By dozens they gather as they sow,

The musicians with visions of music each.

 

Below in the pit, instruments tune, screech, enhance.

Is wept in broken unison a sad romance.

Maestro finally takes place, in a cloak of dusk, 

Baton in hand, raised high it must.

 

The crowd is suddenly hushed. 

The musicians’ hearts pounding in rush.

 

Before this now silent and disdaining throng, 

The orchestra prays, whimpers, frightened and forlorn:  

At tonight’s performance, a bastard song, a Strange Symphony, will be born.
