The music on Fixations was built from a collection of ideas that were developed in the past few years before Pierre-Luc Simon decided to play as a solo performer. The release is an opportunity to share those ideas that did not have the chance to be used in his different band projects but kept insisting to be played.The first piece Apparition , is based on the repetition and a slow evolution of tones over a (poly)rythmic pattern and the trance coming with this system while the second piece, Cataire Party is more a melting pot of half improvised, half composed ideas.

Pierre-Luc Simon is actually playing with the Montreal based
band Technical Kidman as well as collaborating with different musicians from the local improvisation/experimental scene.

La musique sur Fixations est le résultats d’une collecte d’idées trouvées et développées au cours des dernières années, avant même que Pierre-Luc Simon ne s’engage dans la performance en
solo. Cette nouvelle parution est en fait une bonne excuse pour partager toutes ces idées qui n’ont pas eu la chance d’être utilisées dans les différents projets collectifs des années passées. La première pièce Apparition est basée sur la répétition et la lente évolution timbrale d’un motif (poly)rythmique alors que la seconde pièce, Cataire Party est une belle salade d’idées à la fois composées et improvisées.

En plus d’être membre du groupe Montréalais Technical Kidman, Pierre-Luc Simon collabore aussi avec différents musiciens de la scène d’improvisation/expérimentale locale.
