Here are a few media comments on the work of Serge Laporte:
"...fans of Patrick O'Hearn and Mark Dwane should flock to this album... parts of Sea of a thousand stories were reminiscent of the very best Cirque du Soleil albums... Laporte's fine compositions... literally jump out of the speakers at you ... One of the year's best..." (Lloyd Barde, Backroads music, USA)
"...Laporte's impressive musical skills and the album's incredible sound quality makes" Sea of a thousand stories" an amazing debut album for this Canadian composer... (Tim Van Veen, Radio Slor, The Netherlands)
"...an obvious gift for classical arrangements and for an intelligent use, new and inspired, of the synthesizers and percussion (it is getting rare). The music of Serge Laporte is a genuine breath of fresh air in a world of mass production but with little inspiration..." (Francois Grapard, musical critic, France)
