• Show Bio for Bernard Falaise
"Bernard Falaise. Born Montréal, Québec, 1965. Residence: Montréal, Québec. Composer, Performer (guitar).
Bernard Falaise was born in Montréal, where he currently lives. He plays electric guitar, composes and improvises - all with evident joy - for Miriodor, Klaxon Gueule, les Projectionnistes, Diesel and other groups. He has written for the Ensemble contemporain de Montréal (ECM), Quartango and the Isis Quartet, and has created music for exhibitions, television, the theatre and dance. Allergic to labels, Falaise explores acid rock, twelve-tone waltzes and industrial tangos with equal enthusiasm."-ActuelleCD (http://www.actuellecd.com/en/bio/falaise_be/)

sample the album:
"Guitarist Bernard Falaise might be the only musician on this record, but you won't find here any composition for solo guitar. A good chunk of "lezardes et zebrures's basic material features an acoustic guitar played in open tunings and fed into a freezer pedal in order to endlessly play very short loops that sound a little bit as if you were listening to a guitar and organ duo from outer space. Successive layers of instruments - from electric guitar to glockenspiel and melodica - contribute to create a rich sonic universe, at the same time acoustic and electronic, naive and skillful."-Ambiances Magnetiques
