Lauzier / Martel / Myhr / Tetreault: Disparition de l'usine ephemere (Ambiances Magnetiques)
Label: Ambiances Magnetiques    
Released in: Canada    


Disparition de l'usine ephemere is the first release of a quartet consisting of prominent improvisers from Quebec and Norway. The peculiar combination of old and new instruments renders a poetic image of a faded, bygone industrial plant.The quartet works within both narrow and broad acoustic areas: sometimes focusing on a tiny vibration, other times a polyphonic orchestra of pipes, pumps, wheels, objects, bells and motors ring together: a multiplicity of cogwheels spinning in different tempos, all working together to create a large machine of acoustic and electronic sounds.Philippe Lauzier saxophone alto + clarinette basse + preparations // Pierre-Yves Martel viole de gambe + objets + preparations // Kim Myhr guitare acoustique + objets + preparations // Martin Tetreault tourne-disque defectueux, bras, surfaceshttp://www.actuellecd.com/fr/cat/am_181/

"Composer, improviser, instrumentalist (clarinet & saxophone) and sound artist, Philippe Lauzier participates in several projects that tour regularly in Canada and Europe, but also in USA, Latine America and Australia. In his solo and collective work, his ideas incorporate influences of contemporary musical languages as well as sounds from non-Western sources. Creative extended techniques, complex drones from which polyphonies emerge, and a certain compositional rigour are typical of his style. His interest for collaborative intermedia practices also leads him to create sound installation pieces, live performances for contemporary dance, theater music and many sound designs for visual art projects. Philippe lives in Montreal, Quebec."

"Pierre-Yves Martel. Born Vanier, Ontario, Canada, 1979. Residence: Montréal, Québec. Composer, Performer (viola da gamba, double bass, objects)

Following a unique artistic path, Pierre-Yves Martel is constantly renewing his musical identity and practice. Though a instrumentalist, he identifies himself first and foremost as a sound artist whose work oscillates between perpetual research and experimentation. It is in this spirit that he has revisited the viola da gamba, utilizing this traditional instrument in new contexts and thus reengaging it with the contemporary world. Having created an authentic musical language through non-conventional techniques and instrumental preparations, he also works outside of instrumental music altogether, using a variety of objects rife with new sonic possibilities, from contact-mics and speakers to motors, wheels, surfaces and textures."
