Canadian Composition & Improvisation
sample the album:
"Improvisations on pieces written by clarinetist Langevin & percussionist Tanguay. The instrumentation is, of course, unusual, including bagpipes, jaws-harps, accordions and too many others to list. Derome and René guest on one track, but the interest lies in the duo's unique and extended improvisations, fascinating and quirky journeys through sound. "Trying to understand the past in order to better understand the future. Doing what we can, doing our best, finding our nest. That's It""-Langevin, Tanguay
