Jesse Osborne - Lanthier [CA, DE]
Active since 2007, Jesse Osborne-Lanthier is a Montreal-born Berlin-based multidisciplinary artist and musician focused on inciting alternative cognitive responses via mixed sonic material. Lanthier’s collaborative aliases include Femminielli Noir with Bernardino Femminielli, The H with Francesco De Gallo (Hobo Cubes) and ongoing collaborations with labels such as Where To Now?, Halcyon Veil, MIND Records and raster-noton. Interested in making music and art to substantiate and archive his various moods, thoughts, political views and current (...sometimes fleeting) interests, his focus is to create an abstract memory of himself that he can engage with; to understand and evaluate the ongoing interactions between self, ideas and identities, both in common and private areas. Unlimited by musical genre and the confines of musicality itself, Lanthier’s sound operates through contrasts: from subtle to textured, from structured to fluid, from symphonic to dissonant, from minimal to intricate, his works are at once present, futuristic and intemporal. He creates hybrids of languages through the use of current technologies and techniques, maintaining a taste for intensity as a tool for immersive engagement.
