Artist Biographies:

"Pierre Cartier's music is the convergence of the multiple approaches he has pursued since the very start of his career. A classically trained double bass player, a specialist in baroque music on original instruments, Pierre Cartier wishes to play music as one speaks one's mother tongue - that is, with freedom, fluidity, and intelligence - passing from symphonic music to baroque and contemporary music, and from the jazz of Thelonious Monk to the fertile grounds of improvisation. He founded his own ensemble in 1987 and, centred on his own instrumental compositions, develops a very personal integration of musical idioms.

However, it is in vocal music, when voice and text mobilize both the spirit and the heart, that this integration is at its most organic. The discovery of his deep affinity for ancient sacred song, particularly Gregorian Chant and primitive polyphony, accompanied the composition of his first vocal work Chansons de Douve, a solemn and majestic ceremonial created around the poems of Yves Bonnefoy.

"Dis, Blaise..." chanson du Transsibérien sets to music a long poem published by Blaise Cendrars in 1913: Prose du Transsibérien et de la Petite Jeanne de France. This musical journey, at once painful and enlightening, was for Pierre Cartier a turning point since it was the first time he sang solo while playing the double bass.

Chansons de la belle espérance is his most recent show: seven jazz songs on texts by Québec poets. These songs, in the manner of jazz standards, shed both a lyrical and critical light on the timeless theme of love.

Pierre Cartier is a member of the new music group Jean Derome et les Dangereux Zhoms, of the group Évidence (music of Thelonious Monk), of the Studio de musique ancienne de Montréal, the Schola St-Grégoire, and the Strauss-Lanner ensemble."

"Jean Derome. Born Montréal, Québec, 1955. esidence: Montréal, Québec. Composer, Performer (saxophones (alto, baritone, soprano), flutes (flute, bass flute, piccolo, alto flute, recorders), keyboards, small wind instruments (ocarinas, jew's harp, game calls, toys...), percussion, invented instruments, voice)

One of the most active and eclectic musicians on the Canadian creative music scene, Jean Derome has managed to earn the recognition of a larger public, a rare feat in that field. Thanks to his large-scale musique actuelle projects, his compositions, his work as an improviser, his jazz groups and his music for the screen and the stage, Derome ranks as a major creative force, in Québec and abroad. He is experienced and innovative on both saxophone and flute, and his unique writing style cannot be mistaken for anyone else's. Sensitive and powerful, his music often features a funny strike that makes its complex nature more inviting.

Ever since Nébu (one of Québec's first avant-garde jazz groups) in the early '70s, Derome has been consistently renewing and diversifying his approach of composition. He impressed audience and critics first with the flute, then with the saxophone, as a lead character in the musique actuelle underground. He took part to the various artists' collectives looking for new ways to express themselves freely, without esthetic or social constraints, including the Ensemble de musique improvisée de Montréal. Later, in the early '80s, he co-founded Ambiances Magnétiques, a collective and record label that raised his profile at home and introduced his name to the outside world. Among his numerous projects, let us mention the duos Les Granules, Nous perçons les oreilles and Plinc! Plonc!, the dynamic group Jean Derome et les Dangereux Zhoms, and the large-scale projects Confitures de gagaku, Je me souviens - Hommage à Georges Perec and Canot-camping. Most of these projects are based on a unique form of synergy between composition, structured improvisation and genuine creative madness, all this articulated with unmatched playfulness. In 1992, Derome became the second artist to be presented with the Freddie Stone Award (bassist Lisle Ellis was the first).

Besides improvising on a regular basis with Ambiances Magnétiques' members and appearing in their projects, Derome has also shared the stage with several musicians of international stature, among others Fred Frith, Lars Hollmer, Louis Sclavis and Han Bennink. He performs regularly all over Canada, in the US and in Europe. He received a Prix Opus in 2001 for his exposure abroad.

Lately, jazz circles have been praising his undisputable qualities as a jazzman, thanks to the Thelonious Monk tribute project Évidence, the Normand Guilbeault Ensemble (whose Mingus Erectus CD is devoted to Charles Mingus' music), and the much-lauded Derome Guilbeault Tanguay Trio.

Although Jean Derome writes tirelessly for his own projects, he is much in demand in the fields of film, theatre and dance. A short list of this side of his work would have to include his numerous scores for the National Film Board of Canada (NFB), especially for films by John Walker, Jacques Leduc, Fernand Bélanger and animated films by Pierre Hébert, Michèle Cournoyer and Jean Detheux; his incidental music for Théâtre UBU, Théâtre de Quat'Sous and Théâtre du Nouveau Monde; not forgetting his work with several top choreographers, including Louise Bédard, Andrew de Lotbinière Harwood, Daniel Soulières and Ginette Laurin. Other music ensembles have commissioned works from him, including Tuyo, Bradyworks, the Hard Rubber Orchestra from Vancouver and Fanfare Pourpour. Incidentally, Derome is the musical director of the latter.

Over thirty years of music and 70 record credits later, Jean Derome still has sleeves bursting with tricks."

"With his faithful accomplices, and on the heals of his Chansons de Douve, Pierre Cartier presents, a double cd, «Dis, Blaise…» chanson du Transsibérien , who he sings from start to finish the very epic and very famous poem by Blaise Cendrars.

A composer, doublebass player and singer, Pierre Cartier is involved in many different musics: gregorian chant and medieval music, baroque musique on period instruments, symphonic and contemporary musics, jazz (notably Thelonious Monk) and improvised new musics.

All of these practices merge into his music upon the fortunate meeting of poetry and song. Following the majestuous ceremonial of Chansons de Douve ,with poems by Yves Bonnefoy, Cartier now borrows the passionnate voice of Blaise Cendrars for his new project.

“I was not yet acquainted with the works of Blaise Cendrars when, flipping one day through the pages of an anthology of French poetry, I first fell upon the Prose du Transsibérien. I think I must have been deeply moved by this style of writing that resembled nothing I had encountered before, and which actually seemed quite alien to me then (I was working on poems by Yves Bonnefoy at the time); and yet, it touched me to the extent that I immediately felt the urge to sing this text. I also knew nothing of the almost mythical character—the traveller and adventurer—Cendrars had become, nor even of the man himself, whose voice resounded within me, pure and true. Vision, desire, violence, gentleness: this poem simply spoke the essence of suffering."-Pierre Cartier
