• Show Bio for Bernard Falaise
"Bernard Falaise. Born Montréal, Québec, 1965. Residence: Montréal, Québec. Composer, Performer (guitar).
Bernard Falaise was born in Montréal, where he currently lives. He plays electric guitar, composes and improvises - all with evident joy - for Miriodor, Klaxon Gueule, les Projectionnistes, Diesel and other groups. 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."-ActuelleCD (http://www.actuellecd.com/en/bio/falaise_be/)

descriptions, reviews, &c.
"The adaptable Michel F Côté presents a set of 19 songs and short country blues oriented works. For Côté this is a suprisingly accessible work, though certainly creatively accessible, with unusual instrumentation and sampling, traditional blues instruments augmented by voice, synth, theremin, even "poor whistling", with overall interesting spatial qualities and unique directions. Some of the songs sample directly from the artists covered, such as "Spike Driver Blues" featuring Mississipi John Hurt himself on vocals, or Billie Holliday's "I Can't Give You Anything but Love" with a crackly Billie singing over the updated song. Frequent collaborators Jean Derome, Bernard Falaise, Normand Guilbeault, Tom Walsh, etc, bring out the best in the music; a very interesting and enjoyable release."-Ambiance Magnetiques
