"Sylvie Chenard has been working on her new whale project, Océan, since 1999. In recent years we have come to know her duo performances on her 1999 CD, Hybride, and on her 2000 CD, Manifeste pour contrer la violence faite aux femmes.
Now in 2002 the whale will be presenting elements of her experimentation and improvisation with some of people who she has invited to improvise with her in duos.
This time the star, plankton, and the sea horse will dive with the whale to the depths of a little marine bestiary that demands to be known and that has given birth to the CD Océan pour la suite.
For the sake of the oceans, for the sake of the world, for the sake of origins from noises before music. From her duo with Maryse Poulin come the pieces "Bestiaire marin," "Le monde bouge," "Peau de pays," and "Souffle"; with Alexandre St-Onge: "Plancton," "Ombres pensantes," and "Particules"; and with Martin Tétreault: "Vagues," "Plage," "Chevauchée," "Dépollution," "Intempestive," and "Pour la suite."
You are invited to plunge into these three sea-soaked meditations. Océan."-Ambiances Magnetiques
