Falaise, Bernard / Tetrault, Martin: des gestes defaits (&Records)
Label: &Records    
Released in: Canada    

"A circular attempt (33 1/3 revolutions) ::: Martin provided me with recordings of 3 solo concerts (Thursday, Friday and Saturday) ::: I put together a bank of 33 short fragments (between 5 and 40 seconds each), 11 per concert ::: I also created a chorus of 18 seconds (1/10 of 3 minutes), made up of 3 other fagments, one per concert ::: 11 pieces of 3 minutes make des gestes défaits Each piece uses as sound material only 3 of the chosen fragments, one per concert ::: the chorus is played at the beginning, then repeated in a different way 3 minutes later, so that it comes with an 18-second delay in each piece :: Meanwhile, each peice reuses as is an audio track from the preceding piece (the first piece reuses an audio track from the last piece) :::" - 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."
