Today I’m introducing you to Serge Lacasse (aka. Prof. Lacasse); a Canadian music producer, songwriter and musician. In addition to having accumulated a catalogue of instrumental and vocal pieces of music (e.g. for museum exhibitions, advertising, etc.), he has collaborated as producer/songwriter/musician with artists signed to majors and national labels in Canada.
Prof. Lacasse is a multi-instrumentalist: not only does he play the piano, but he is also an accomplished drummer and guitarist. He has been writing piano music since his early teens but only recently decided to propose it to the world. His first piano solo album, entitled Piano Evocations, features 13 intimate pieces exploring a variety of emotions in the post-classical style. The track Lost and Found is taken from this album.
Tell us something about your track Lost and Found!
This track was inspired by Olafur Arnald’s piano music. Actually, I wanted to be able to compose a melody that would be as touching as some of his music, for example “Saman”. I don’t know if I attain my goal (LOL), but I’m very happy with the results. Something else about this pice: I’ve produced a video of it that you can see here.
There’s an anecdote about another piece of the album, “Debussy” (composed when I was 16: I’m now 56), that I’m recounting in the video above.
