Hetu, Labrosse, Parkins, Roger, Tenko: La legende de la pluie (Ambiances Magnetiques)
Label: Ambiances Magnetiques    
Released in: Canada    

"La légende de la pluie is a large-scale musical work which was created for and presented at the Montréal Musiques Actuelles/New Music America festival in 1990. La légende de la pluie was created collectively by five musicians/composers: Joane Hétu, Diane Labrosse, Danielle Palardy Roger (all three known for their work with Wondeur Brass and Justine), along with Zeena Parkins and Tenko (who have played with Elliot Sharp, Fred Frith and John Zorn, among others). Each brings in a personal language and a strong sense of individuality, and collectively they invented an inspired musical melodrama which belongs to the world of musique actuelle.La Légende de la pluie is a baroque collage of nebulous atmospheres. Composed for synthesizers, electric harp, tabletop guitar, accordion, alto saxophone, acoustic and electronic percussion and voices. It is a strange and contemporary legend, where improvisation, orchestration, synthetic chaos, melodious and onomatopoeic vocals take place in a whimsical world."-Ambiances Magnetique
