Flore Laurentienne is the project of Quebecan composer Mathieu David Gagnon. He has announced the release of a new album called Volume II which will be out on October 21st via RVNG Intl. & Costume Records. According to the press release, Presenting another palette of rich orchestral sound, where changing forces of water inspire metaphorical markers that navigate passages of life and loss. In this project, Mathieu David Gagnon resumes his voyage into environment and emotion, drawing inspiration from the rivers and rugged wilderness of the composer’s native Quebec. In Volume II, Gagnon continues his expansion of classical composition archetypes to meet a new realm of sonic romanticism. Thematic conventions of wandering the pastoral sublime become altered into glimmering refractions, relaying the emotional and kinetic power of natural energies. Volume II forms an estuary where streams of auditory microcosm reach a horizon of dynamic contrast, and reflect the parallel tenors of nature and humankind.
