Using extended and unsual techniques of cutting up, scratching, scraping, sanding grooves, even ironing his records, turntabilist Martin Tetreault approaches new music in audacious ways.

Tetreault, Martin
Des pas et des mois

Tetreault, Martin: Des pas et des mois (Ambiances Magnetiques)
Label: Ambiances Magnetiques    
Released in: Canada    

"Martin Tétreault is not a standard musician: his instruments are turntables. A specialist of reduction and trafficking, he has been fascinated by vinyl for several years: cutting up, scratching, scraping and even sanding the grooves. He will even go as far as ironing his victims to extract unheard sonorities!

His first album, Des pas et des mois has been conceived with the company of René Lussier, Michel F Côté, Jean Derome and Robert Marcel Lepage. Unwoven rhythms, twisted steps and social dance: Martin Tétreault plays like a mad scientist at mixing genres, creating a narrative music with his recorded samplings and his carefully dosed feedbacks.

Audacious, different, new, this music is related to rock by its humorous energy, and touches the inner rhythms of the modern world."-Ambiances Magnetiques
