Errance debuts with his glorious ‘Guidance’

Errance, the solo project of Canadian artist Gabriel Gagnon, released his debut single, ‘Guidance’, on March 1, 2024, through Société Holographique de Montréal. The track serves as the lead for his upcoming self-produced album, ‘Errance,’ slated for release later this year. Gagnon, known for his extensive career as a producer and composer for renowned artists and international campaigns, has received support for ‘Guidance’ from BBC Radio 6’s Tom Ravenscroft and Deb Grant. Co-produced with Hologramme, the song showcases Gagnon’s musical journey rooted in deep introspection, self-growth, and a profound connection to nature. As Errance, he delivers a sound inspired by the likes of Floating Points, Mount Kimbie, Max Cooper and Jon Hopkins.

‘Guidance’ is an organic house composition reminiscent of Parra For Cuva and Fejká, featuring bouncy beats and resonant sounds. The track immerses listeners in a distant natural realm with its rhythmic percussion, rich synths, and resonant echoes. Free from monotony, it offers a sonic journey reflecting the calming yet invigorating essence of the natural world, akin to a vibrant setting that inspires contemplation.

Errance revealed:The inspiration for this track struck me during a hike last spring; the sound of the melted snow beneath my feet, the birds chirping around me, and the echoes of my voice against the rocks of the national park all played a part in shaping its conception. I recorded various sounds to capture that specific moment. My aim was to convey a sense of elevation, a continual ascension. . ‘Guidance’ is the balance between my electronic, organic, and sensory worlds, drawing inspiration from the perpetual movement of nature that surrounds us. It beckons you to forge ahead with determination, to contemplate the horizon, introspect and maintain focus. Through this release, I feel a longing to break free, to embark on a new chapter in my life, and to generously share my sound..”
