Lansig Artem is certainly an emerging Canadian name as a world-fusion guitarist. His unik technique combined with great musicality appeal to most listener. His technique which is based on fingerstyle only where no guitar pick is ever used either for chords, melody or soloing, brings a natural sound to the play. As a composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist, his music is fully individuated but still implies worldwide colors. In fact, many ingredients characterise the essence of Lansig Artem's music. As he states himself, the music is a connection to the soul and therefore should contain inner impressions and moods and, life interconnections. Melody is at the heart of this music but is often supported by sophisticated ambiences or atmospheres, if not complexe rythm textures. For him, effective melody is a key to successful music since it brings a 'story' or a direction to the song. Harmony and rythms create the environment for the message to catch it's essence and to get through to the listener! While jazz and rock imprints are present, Flamenco and other latin root music, but also, middle east and oriental traditional have a direct influence to his production. Artem's main concerned is to be musical, influential while still be creative and original. As far as originality is a concern, it is not a coincidence if some of his prefered groups were those that reign in the progressive rock period of the 70s. Genesis, Gentle Giant, Yes, Pink Floyd, Rush all have created an persisting impression on him while at a tender age. Jazz fusion has also played a major role in his formation and influence by groups like UZEB, John McLaughlin and the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Chick Corea with Return To Forever and Weather Report is undeniable. He has completed music studies and experimentation at College of St-Laurent in Quebec, Canada and at the University of Montreal where he pursued a contemporary composition program with such names as Serge Garant, Michel Longtin and Jose Evangelista After a few years of meditation and experimentation with different jazz and pop groups, he decided to publish his music for guitar and to make it into a finished product. In 2006 Lansig Artem launched his first guitar album 'Floating Point' which got him good critics.
