Jesse Osborne Lanthier is a Montreal-born, Berlin-based conceptual electronic musician and visual artist. He has active as a sound artist since 2007. His focused on inciting alternative cognitive responses via mixed sonic material.
His work, in its range from dub-influenced techno to static waves of noise, is always textural and resists references to simplified, predictable formats. About all of his work Osborne Lanthier writes, "instead of using a platform or mold of dance music in order to make people move, I might use it to prompt a certain feeling, state, understanding, or aesthetic. I aim to use the tools which are available to me through contemporary music in order to reach a different and individualized end."
His most recent album, Otherwise Insignificant Psyche Debris, is comprised of 22 live recordings from over the last few years and was released as a cassette via labels Hobo Cult and MIND Records. Focused on the concept of dispositional emotional regulation, the body of work deals with acceptance, avoidance, problem solving, reappraisal, rumination, and suppression. It contains remixes by Grischa Lichtenberger (Raster Noton, Semantica), Vereker (L.I.E.S.), Hobo Cubes (Debacle, Digitalis, Opal Tapes), VNDL (Kvitnu, Hymen), and Robert Lippok (To Rococo Rot, Raster Noton) and is mastered by Vladislav Delay.
