"Vancouver meets Montreal! Recorded at the Factory in Vancouver, The Unexpected One documents a meeting between four pillars of free improvisation: two guitarists, Bernard Falaise and Ron Samworth, and two percussionists, Pierre Tanguay and Dylan Van der Schyff.

They proudly present this debut album of noisy interlacing, where sounds cover a wide spectrum, from the minimal and subtle to the unbridled. Strings and percussion converse: the guitar throws in syncopated, jarring, industrial-tinged notes, letting a short and soft melodic loop occasionally surface. The percussion unfold relentlessly, nervously, expressing themselves by leaps and bounds. The whole thing is quivering, eager to absorb the listener under its inventive horizons. Therefore The Unexpected One is proof of these talented musicians’ impressive flexibility and skilled playing."-Ambiances Magnetiques

"Bernard Falaise. Born Montréal, Québec, 1965. Residence: Montréal, Québec. Composer, Performer (guitar).

Bernard Falaise was born in Montréal, where he currently lives.

He has written for the Ensemble contemporain de Montréal (ECM), Quartango and the Isis Quartet, and has created music for exhibitions, television, the theatre and dance. Allergic to labels, Falaise explores acid rock, twelve-tone waltzes and industrial tangos with equal enthusiasm."
