Xavier Lebuis (CA)

Montréaler Xavier Lebuis produces bright, techno-heavy house that veers into the minimal and abstract. Using both analogue instruments and laptop, Lebuis’s live sets roll out naturally from composed musical pieces infused with vibrant improvised elements and hints of musique concrète. Producing electroacoustic and sound art since 2003 alongside interdisciplinary visual art, Lebuis added DJ to his repertoire in 2005 and has made music under the moniker Timbral Fresco with sound artist Alexandre Bélair. He’s recorded his own work on labels Mr. Music (his 2010 Tea Sugar & Dreams EP) and Archipel, and a four-track EP called Sibylline that Beatport named among its Top 5 minimal releases in 2011. Lebuis regularly DJs and performs live sets at various clubs and events, including Piknic Electronik and MUTEK 2011.

Xavier Lebuis began making music in the electro-acoustic realm in 2003. In 2004 and 2005, he worked under the pseudonym Timbral Fresco alongside Alexandre Bélair. But ever since he began Djing in 2005, his sound has shifted into minimal house, which in his hands always retains aspects of musique concrète and bits of jazz. The results are at once digital and organic, cerebral yet propulsive.
