RECOMMENDED LISTENING: Le Grand Salon - Dévoré jusqu'à la ruine ; partie I : Immobile

This piece is the first part of a triptych about vastness and desolation in a contemplative way. The accent is put on textures and general mood instead of harmony and structure. All three pieces feature the use of the harp, the piano and some kind of sound from nature. The title means "Devoured to ruins".

Le Grand Salon is a one-man project from Québec born composer, producer and violonist Pier-Luc Boivin. Focusing on textures and timbres more than structure or harmony, the music of Le Grand Salon falls somewhere between dark ambient and modern composition. Frozen strings, distant piano, sounds from nature and various synths help create a soothing yet engaging soundscape.
