Comment: Mathieu Lamontage is an artist of French-Canadian ancestry from the province of Quebec, Canada who is also being known as Arbee. In fact, he is obviously being better known due to the nom de plume due to having it preceded to writing music under his own personal name. What may be the main difference between Mathieu Lamontage and Arbee? His oeuvre being written under his own name is evidently more concentrated on ambient and drone sounds with intention to create more monumental works – by listening to this 3-track outing one can hear either fragmented or segmented fractals related to a majestically sweeping whole which could be considered a representative of those immense snow fields at northern part of Quebec, a good plateau for riding on snowmobile while being surrounded by the overcoming void and wind. Indeed, it is a beatific perspective being separated off the suffocating civilisation. Of course, such picturesque sort of descriptions cannot be eradicated from my personal memory due to experiencing another Quebecer Tim Hecker`s early albums, especially Radio Amor which is some kind of quintessence of the Northern Hemisphere being described through audible artificial frequencies. The blissful glimpse is a part of the discography of Audio Gourmet.
