Today on the Clarineat podcast my guest is Vancouver's Francois Houle. We spend the entire episode focusing on extended techniques including tips for those who would like to start for the first, and the importance of adjusting your "ear attitude" so you can appreciate this type of music. Biography Clarinetist François Houle has established himself as one of today’s most inventive musicians, in all of the diverse musical spheres he embraces. Inspired by collaborations with the world’s top musical innovators, François has developed a unique improvisational language, virtuosic and rich with sonic embellishment and technical extensions. A sought after soloist and chamber musician, he has actively expanded the clarinet’s repertoire by commissioning some of today’s leading Canadian and international composers and premiering over one hundred new works. A founding member of critically acclaimed ensembles such as Sea and Sky, The Turning Point Ensemble and Standing Wave, François has also collaborated with leading ensembles in Canada, including ECM+, Bozzini Quartet, Fibonacci Trio, among others. He has been listed on numerous occasions in Downbeat magazine’s Readers and Critics’ Polls as “Talent Deserving Wider Recognition” and “Rising Star”.

Today on the Clarineat podcast my guest is Vancouver's François Houle. We discuss how François found his musical voice and became an incredibly diverse and successful performer. We then focus on three of his albums: Rue Paul Fort, Double Entendre, and Aerials, and briefly touch on the recording session for the pop song called "How it Goes" from Canadian rock music icon Matthew Good's album "Lights of Endangered Species," which includes Francois on clarinet.

Phil Lambert was born in Christchurch, New Zealand. After completing his Music Degree, Phil relocated to Melbourne, Australia where he continued his musical career as a composer, teacher and performer and established his own company Cloudbreak Music®. Phil has now composed for Feature Films, Film Trailers, Short Films, Media Projects and TVCs, performed live at various venues, radio stations and an appearance on T.V as well as receiving radio play for his compositions along with interviews throughout Australia and New Zealand. He has also built a successful private woodwind teaching business and created the internationally recognised product Classical Fingers®. As a music educator, Phil has been teaching Clarinet, Saxophone and Flute for 18 years and now teaches privately from his studio in Kensington, Melbourne. Phil believes that private tuition is important as it not only establishes a bond between teacher and student, but it allows him to personally focus solely on each student’s needs at the particular level they are at; “Every student is different so every lesson needs to be tailored to suit their ability and potential.” During Phil’s years of teaching woodwind he encountered numerous players, both beginners and advanced, that naturally played the clarinet by lifting their fingers too high so he started experimenting with the idea of using a device to help reduce this movement. In 2011 Phil started developing a prototype that his students could use on a more regular basis away from the lesson and in 2014 the evolution of Classical Finegrs was finally realised. Since its release, Classical Fingers has now been sold to 28 countries including to: Teachers, Students, Stores, Universities, High Schools and Distributors. It has also won various Design Awards and has been exhibited in Australia, Korea, Frankfurt and USA. Phil is currently devloping Classical Fingers for the Flute.
