Biography

Freeworm (a.k.a. Vincent Letellier) is an environmentalist of the imagination whose organic, multiform style navigates the vast expanses of the sonic world. The Montreal-based multi-instrumentalist leads a constantly evolving musical project that integrates conventional instrumentation (guitar, bass, percussion, brass, etc.) with original digital constructs (programming, sound manipulation and a hefty bank of home-made samples). Combined with the contributions of the many musicians he’s met along the way, his is a unique palette with an ever-increasing variety of colours.

Freeworm’s first record, Vegetation=Fuel (2000, Hydrophonik/Indica), clearly demonstrated his innate passion for experimenting and delving the depths of sonic possibility. He extracted sounds from the forests of Quebec—earthy acoustic textures and aquatic atmospheres—to produce a work of driving, ethnic-tinted electronic rhythms overlaid by the elements of a recycled natural soundscape. Like the changing lay of the forest terrain, Vegetation=Fuel transports the listener into the surging rolls of drum’n’ bass, through the adamant rhythms of breakbeats, past the soothing cascades of liquid jazz and over to the hip hop party next door. The melodious phonetic utterances of Verushka provided an extra dimension, a warmth that touched the listener and added an ethno-international ambience to the Freeworm experience.

Originally from Luskville, a small village in western Quebec, Freeworm began his musical expeditions in 1991 as a member of the electro-folk group Jus (« Juice »).
