Gobeil, Gilles & Lussier, Rene: Le Contrat (Empreintes Digitales)
Label: Empreintes Digitales    
Released in: Canada    

Le contrat ('The contract') is a magnificent fresco inspired by Goethe's Faust and its infinite cultural ramifications. A symbiosis of one's ardour (Lussier) and the other's meticulousness (Gobeil).
"Our project? To compose a work inspired by Goethe's Faust and to build it according to the very architecture of the poem. Quite a contract! A glance at our diaries should have been enough to bring us back to our senses, but we had already put the cogs in motion. It took us a few years to understand that the project would require much more time than expected, and a few more to admit that we would never make it to the end! Why? First, we are two remorseless maniacs and we just kept on (happily) tripping over every single crack this masterpiece laid down in front of us; second, life played its part, tossing us from crest to trough, each year bringing its load of surprises. It took Goethe more than 30 years to write his Faust. Should we sell our souls in order to meet the terms of our 'Contract'?"
