Since a young age, Thomas Meluch has been fascinated by natural sounds and the textures of decay. He began playing piano before his feet could reach the pedals, and for more than a decade has sought to create a unique sonic environment by combining remnants of pop song structures with the lushness and unpredictability of field recordings. A veteran drummer of a half dozen bands and an avid collector of instruments and analog devices, Meluch relies on guitar and voice as the bases for his work as BENOIT PIOULARD.
FOXES IN FICTION began as a audio sample collage project that I started at the age of 15 while living in the bucolic Toronto suburb of Oakville, prompted by a love of tape machines, field recordings and digital manipulation. The new direction of Foxes in Fiction sought out to combine elements of pop, compositional experimentalism with looping, and ambient music in an effort to create a listening experience that provided people with a deeply comforting and psychological healing feeling.
