Sound artist, performer, bassist, composer etc Alexandre St-Onge (of Shalabi Effect, Et Sans, Feu Thérèse and others) offers another solo release under his own name titled ‘Viorupeeeeihean’. The new record comprises three new tracks of a highly experimental nature, though somewhat typical akin to St-Onge’s output. ‘Viorupeeeeihean’ comes across as a very confusing and distant record, where experimental concepts find themselves interwoven into sound designs and presentations. An underlying element of ‘music’ runs throughout the record, presenting us with another sometimes confusing but incredibly engrossing experience from St-Onge.

‘Viorupeeeeihean’ doesn’t present us with a typical musical experience. Instead we’re presented with the clicks and cracks of ambient noises, sometimes accompanied by the occasional instrument to push along a specific image forward. The album itself seems to fall somewhere between St-Onge’s 2001’s musique concrète ‘Kasi Naigo’, which offered a sparse sounding experience, and St-Onge’s 2007 album ‘Mon Animal Est Possible’. The musique concrète elements of St-Onge’s earlier work find themselves interwoven into the compositional and more importantly thematic elements of ‘Mon Animal Est Possible’. The work comes across as interesting, even though it is highly unconventional.

Whilst Alexandre St-Onge is phenomenal at tapping into that little part of us that extract certain emotions from certain sounds, there’s still some rather dull elements to ‘Viorupeeeeihean’ as an album experience. Whilst perhaps not as difficultly challenging as ‘Kasi Naigo’, it isn’t St-Onge’s best moment to date. Many of ‘Viorupeeeeihean’s challenges and ideas have been presented in better styles on some of St-Onge’s other works, giving ‘Viorupeeeeihean’ a somewhat redundant element. Some new ideas are present here and there, but there’s a strong element of St-Onge being perhaps a little bit too indulgent.

Whilst ‘Viorupeeeeihean’ might come across as less of a challenging listen than other albums releases by St-Onge, it feels like as an album that it sadly doesn’t really offer enough from the highly inventive artist. Had we not heard some/most of the ideas before, ‘Viorupeeeeihean’ might not come as across as such a weak album. Musically, the album can be described as interesting, certainly coming across as another one of St-Onge’s trips into the very peculiar and unknown. For someone so inventive though, it would have been nice to see something a little different.
