Episode 46 of The Ambient Vault podcast features my special guest Tom Leclerc. Tom Leclerc is a French composer, improviser, and sound artist. With synthesizers, modular and piano melodies, he creates ambient atmospheres, minimalist and impressionism. He works on improvised and pseudo-generative music combining meditation and emotions in his sounds.
Tom learned the piano at 8 years old, and started to play with synthesizers and modulars for the past two years. Since then, he’s started to record video of his works and he progresses in different places. Recently he tried to explore the limits of music with a performance in the mountains and in front of the ocean. Beyond the logistical difficulty and the physical challenge, he finds inspiration in the middle of nature.
Tom Leclerc, also named ambient montaineer, transports us all in his floral world that links electronic and meditative music with repetitive and hypnotic melodies. Each piece is an artifact composed in a particular place. Recently he played and recorded, “On The Leaves”, his last album, in the forest of the Cantal in France.
