"The Ensemble Pierre Labbé's first album for the label Ambiances Magnétiques,Risque et pendule offers a fusion of avant-garde jazz and contemporary/classical music. Featuring some of the most dynamic and versatile musicians from those fields, the Ensemble Pierre Labbé delivers a first-rate musical performance. The ensemble's process is based on a search for balance between written music and improvisation. Their compositional concern steps away from the developments found in conventional jazz (theme-chorus-theme) to focus instead on a cohabitation between composition and improvisation.
