Les Poules: Hetu, Labrosse, Roger

Les Poules: Hetu, Labrosse, Roger: Phenix (Ambiances Magnetiques)
Label: Ambiances Magnetiques    
Released in: Canada    

"Les Poules offer us a CD on which we can feel density "breathing"; an intense universe, quiet and serene, which is inspired by the eternal revival of the legendary Phoenix."-Ambiances Magnetiques

"Les Poules have been playing together for over a decade, and every passing minute of their long history and musical intimacy. Joane Hétu staked out a minimalist territory of voiceless fricatives and static noises, which she mined over the course of the performance. Diane Labrosse explored a similarly focused territory, while Danielle Palardy Roger's percussion poured out speech-like with orchestraly various gestures accumulating over time into a complex field. A drama of highly attuned listening slowly emerged full of simultaneous starts, frequent finishing of each other's sentences, and sudden collective laughter. Occasionally, certain silences were allowed to move with grace to the center of the circle"-Cristin Miller, Signal to Noise.
