Jean-Michel Blais

Get intimate with the expansive interior soundscapes of pianist and composer Jean-Michel Blais at a live performance of his most recent album, Dans ma main.

Blais blends conservatory skill and precise pop sensibility with synthetic accompaniment, creating a unique environment where the piano’s intimacy can be subtly disrupted at any time.

Featuring post-classical piano with strands of electronic detail, Dans ma main explores an everyday life awash in spirituality, stemming from Blais’ interplay with music as therapy. Compelled by the cathartic air that audiences exude in his pin-drop performances, Blais considers how music has served as a tool of wellness in his own life.

From his prior career in special education, to the role classical and ambient music played soothing the Tourettic symptoms he experienced as a child, Blais’ new compositions subconsciously call upon these periods of his life, reimagining a serenity he had only experienced seated at the piano.
