Cartier, Pierre: Chansons de Douve [2 CDs] (Ambiances Magnetiques)
Label: Ambiances Magnetiques    
Released in: Canada    

"Pierre Cartier, composer and bass player, has been featured in DAME's catalogue with its CD Les fleurs du tapis and his performance in ensembles such as Évidence and Jean Derome et les Dangereux Zhoms. His new project, "Chansons de Douve" ("Songs of Douve"), has been many years in the making and is now available on double CD.

Fourteen songs based on poems by Yves Bonnefoy, which form a profound ceremonial that goes to the heart of poetic investigation, the source of what we may call the sacred. This is the poetry of essence, stripped of ornaments, a pivot between the ontological and the mystical.

Are dialoging two females voices, one man's, three brass instruments, two saxophones, one double-bass and two trap sets. Vocal polyphony and unisons, composed development and improvised solos. "Chansons de Douve" is a suite of mediations on presence and emptiness."-Ambiances Magnetiques
