Montreal DJ Poirier steps off the dance floor as Boundary

Montreal DJ and producer GhislainPoirier is working these days under a new moniker, Boundary.

The pillar of Montreal’s electronic music scene has dropped the dancehall beats and created what he calls ambient, electronic chamber music.  

Listen to his Daybreak interview here:

“Ambient but not elevator music. It’s soundscapey, good music for movies. Not moving a lot, just enough. I'm really comfortable with the notion of background music. It’s there, it’s not there. It’s a presence, but not rushing at you waiting for you to be listened to," he said.

Boundary has organized a listening party for the new album, Still  Life, Tuesday, Sept. 9 at the SAT. There are no visuals, just a lie-down-on-the-floor, close-your-eyes-and-listen party.
