Montréal-based producer and arranger Hologramme (Clément Leduc) has emerged with his third album SOLEDAD opus 32 no.1, released on the 29th of September 2023 via his own imprint Société Holographique de Montréal. The focus track ‘Unfold’ has already picked up significant momentum, with its addition to the Spotify Editorial Playlist “Brain Food”, as well as premiering on mixmag magazine. Hologramme has carved a place for himself in the world of electronic music, touring in support of the likes of Fakear and Mome, appearing at Piknic Electronik (Montreal) and Timeless Festival in South Africa alongside moguls such as Royksopp and Tycho, as well as Montreal Jazz Fest in 2022 where he headlined to over 3000+ attendees. In addition to this, he has accumulated over 5.2 million streams across all platforms.
SOLEDAD opus 32 no.1 transports the listener through a range of moods, with each track shining through in its distinctness while the entire album remains cohesive and engaging. We hear hints of orchestral music, jazz, downtempo – even deep house. There is something here for everyone. Hologramme’s gritty yet otherworldly electronic production and tasty choice of instrumentation creates a captivating sonic journey.
Hologramme remarked on the album: “SOLEDAD opus 32 no.1 is an exploratory album and a screenshot of a transitional moment in my personal life. With this new opus, I allowed myself to study different musical styles without putting restrictions on myself. I imagined this album as if it were a film, separated into two chapters by the Adagios. It’s a record that can be listened to with your eyes closed since it is loaded with images. I also believe that it was a moment in my life where I understood the importance of imperfection in art. It is an important parallel with life, with relationships and with this indescribable force that holds everything that exists together. HSO32NO1 is a complex album, full of subtleties, loaded with emotions and contrasts, it is a record tailored for active listening, to be consumed without moderation.”
