SebVé is the live electronic music act of Canadian composer and performer Sébastien Vaillancourt. His live act features various performance approaches revolving around his keyboard skills, around body-sensors and live-coding. He is currently working on the promotion of his latest LP entitled “Maximum Intra” that came out Nov. 1st, 2018. http://www.sebve.com
He has a bachelor’s degree of composition from the Université de Montréal, and will soon get his master’s degree in electroacoustic music from the Hochschule für Musik “Hanns Eisler” Berlin.
Over the years, SebVé has been forging his style, building a sound-world that artfully combines noises with micro-tonal harmonies to create electronic poems. He has searched long and wide to craft and refine his own timbres and to forge complex harmonic worlds into a rather short and straightforward format that is well represented in Maximum Intra.
“Late 2016 I was asked to compose ambient and meditative tracks for meditation and relaxation purposes. Although I didn’t engage into it because of diverging artistic views, with this idea in mind I started composing some meditative-like pieces on my own behalf. The first one was called Maximum Intra 1, which name is an explosion of the Sanskrit word “Mantra” (song, hymn), exploded into two Latin words: Maximum (furthest, highest) and intra (inside), “the furthest inside”. Another one of the album’s pillars are Daydream-e and Daydream 5. The idea of the Daydream pieces is to put into music the work of the mind as it actively circles around persistent ideas. The album Maximum Intra really focuses on the Mind and its playfulness"
Now focusing on the Live shows, SebVé is building up his reputation in Europe.
