Flore Laurentienne is following up his 2020 Polaris Music Prize longlisted debut “Volume I” with his forthcoming album… “Volume II”. Signalling right out the gate that the composer intends to follow the same style, single “Navigation IV” showcases a mixture of orchestral blossoms and whimsical synths. The track gives me lazy early morning vibes but also a cosy farming and town building soundtrack feel too. Its slow but playful synth underbelly allows the violin, violas and then cellos to sweep in and out like tides beautifully.
Speaking about the album, Flore Laurentienne says it is about using water as an inspirational metaphor for navigating life and loss. Flore is a Quebec native and he used his memories and images of his native homeland to inspire the music too. It all sounds like a wonderful project.
Enjoy “Navigation IV” below – the single is out now. The forthcoming album “Volume II” is due for release on the 21st of October and can be pre-ordered now. A portion of the proceeds from the album will benefit The Saint-Laurent Action Fund. The fund promotes the conservation of ecosystems and the maintenance of uses of the St. Lawrence River and its Gulf via conservation and education.
