XYZ (Martel / Lauzier / Tetreault)
La Formule Xyz

XYZ (Martel / Lauzier / Tetreault): La Formule Xyz (&Records)
Label: &Records    
Released in: Canada    

"In this formula the listener assists to complete sound improvisation thanks to noisemaking, post-industrial sound orchestration, electronic and acoustic sources all of which leave far behind any preconceptions of music. Vibrant polyphony, underlying rhythm, and melody are heard, yet in an opaque and experimentation fashion. For their album, XYZ, Sir Martel, Sir Tétreault, and Sir Lauzier, create fertile ground."-Dame
