"Forêt Endormie is the genre-melding chamber ensemble led by guitarist and composer Jordan Guerette, known widely for his work with American black metal luminaries Falls of Rauros. Formed in 2016 in the "Forest City" of Portland, Maine, Forêt Endormie draws as much from the forms and fantasies of 20th century French composers Erik Satie and Olivier Messiaen, as they do the melancholic Neo-folk of Tenhi and Sol Invictus and heavy minimalism of drone pioneers Earth."  — Joe Sweeney for The Bollard, Portland Maine

"Musically, each piece is intended to evoke a sense of place, most of which ended up being environments that are hostile to humans (a forest on fire, the open sea, approaching storm clouds, arid fields...), metaphors for obstacles we find on our individual journeys. All words are sung in French and are centered around the process of shedding inner negativity and fighting against the compulsion to retreat as we age, hopefully being more open to life afterward."  — Jordan Guerette
