Two saxophones, two voices; two gargoyles, two satyrs; two forces of nature that agitate, whistle, squeak, scrape, blow, and bite, transforming music into a secular incantation and a banquet of sound.

Derome, Jean & Joane Hetu: Shaman - Nous percons les oreilles (Ambiances Magnetiques)
Label: Ambiances Magnetiques    
Released in: Canada    


"Two saxophones, two voices; two gargoyles, two satyrs; two forces of nature that agitate, whistle, squeak, scrape, blow, and bite, transforming music into a secular incantation and a banquet of sound.

They practice in secrecy, like healers or mediums. Their music is lively, moving, almost "tactile." The keywords describing Nous perçons les oreilles are: animal, extra-sensory perception, focus, instinct, intimacy, openness, play, presence, rawness, resonance, risk, sincerity, tearing. This is a rather peculiar duo, down to its very instrumentation. There is a certain symmetry at its core: two alto saxophones improvising together, but the sax players also sing, one relaying the other to a point where, sometimes, there is no way of knowing who plays what. A hall of mirrors, symbiotic work. A duality blending into one, just as two ears sending different and complementary signals to the same brain.

Following Nous perçons les oreilles and La vie, c'est simple, their third album is entitled Shaman because, without claiming that ancestral art, they firmly believe that their work is closer to the world of healing, supernatural communication, and ancestral memory than the world of "entertainment" - the infantilizing disgrace art is turning into."-Ambiances Magnetiques
