The Montreal label Ambiances Magnétiques was formed in 1983 as a non-profit collective. It was originally founded by Jean Derome, Joanne Hetu, Andre Duchesne, Diane Labrosse, Robert Marcel Lepage, Rene Lussier, and Danielle Palardy Roger, and then quickly after added Michel F. Cote and Martin Tetreault. The music encompasses jazz, rock, classical, folk, and experimental, collectively a world of approaches that present both the most melodic and the most bizarre musics imagineable. A true collective, many of the artists show up on each other's works, making the whole much greater than the sum. A label's label, highly recommended.
