descriptions, reviews, &c.

"A strange trio indeed! How to describe this terrific mumbo-combo? Let's try this: a free-exotica-rock band. This post-virtuosity improv trio seems made to change the rules of interplay. Who's soloing? Who's in charge of the beat? Who's leading? Where do they come from? From the land of Conan the Barbarian, I suppose... All in all, their set at DNA showed powerful and weird musical interactions, and a continuous three-dimensional stream of medieval consciousness which undergoes a permanent displacement from point 1 to point 3, from point 2 to point 1, etc. A magnificent example of individual spirits that connect with vector, Achilles vs. Hector, qualities. It was a sharp Frazetta Fantasy soundtrack. A must see, a must hear."-Julian Slitworky, Rolling Stone Magazine

Artist Biographies:

"Sam Shalabi is a central node in Montréal's free improv scene. One cannot count the many projects he is a part of. He is best known as a founding member of Shalabi Effect, who have recorded 2 albums on Alien8 Recordings which have earned the band extremely good response from critics and music enthusiasts alike. Apart from Shalabi Effect, he is also part of a number of bands, among which Detention, Molasses, Balai Mécanique, Po, 'Gypt Gore, and a trio with David Kristian and Alexandre St-Onge. He is also known for three solo albums, Luteness (Squint Fucker Press, deleted), On Haschisch (Alien8), and of course Osama, his investigation of arabophobia in a "post-9-11 world". His style ranges from freeform psychedelic rock to the most oddball abstract performance. Although mostly known as a guitarist, the highly versatile Shalabi also performs on oud and a variety of other instruments."

"Initially a radio character, drummer, and composer, Michel F. Côté became a member of the collective Ambiances Magnétiques in 1988. Since that time, his activities have got encompassed free of charge improvisation along with his groupings Bruire and Klaxon Gueule, sound-art collaborations with Diane Labrosse and Christof Migone, and composing for dance, movie theater, and film. Côté was raised with rock and roll, admiring drummers like Led Zeppelin's powerhouse John Bonham and Yes/Ruler Crimson's man-of-finesse Costs Bruford. But he initial got into the music globe through radio, starting to transmit programs of innovative music in the first '80s at Montreal's community place, CIBL. In 1985, he begun to are a researcher and web host for "Chants Magnétiques" and afterwards "Musique Actuelle" at Radio-Canada, Canada's nationwide francophone radio. A music buff, he sucked in a huge selection of noises and affects, developing his drumming abilities but most of all his studio appearance. In 1988, Côté became the 8th person in Ambiances Magnétiques and documented his first recording beneath the name Bruire. An clothing of unpredictable geometry centered across the drummer, Bruire reinvented itself with each recording. Côté's evolution like a musician could be witnessed through the deconstructed pop tracks of Le Barman A Tort de Sourire (1989) towards the sensitive miniatures of Les Fleurs de Léo (1992) as well as the abstract improvised compositions on L'Âme de l'Objet (1995), a focus on in his discography. In the meantime, Côté started to create incidental music for theatre, dance, and film. This facet of his function quickly became probably the most time-consuming and commercially, aswell as artistically, practical, though it intended employed in the shadows. Since 1995 he is a regular collaborator of playwright/filmmaker Robert Lepage, composing and carrying out the music for the play Les Sept Branches de la Rivière Ota, carrying out in the theatrical cabaret Zulu Period, and composing as well as Bernard Falaise the music of his film Nô. The drummer also caused the dance troupe Carbone 14, and playwrights Wajdi Mouawad and Brigitte Haentjens. The single recording Compil Zouave culls excerpts from these different ratings. In the past due '90s, Côté created a pastime in live consumer electronics and shifted his music toward freer and more-textural pastures. A cooperation with sound designer and Avatar member Christof Migone (Vex, 1998) activated an exploration of the electro-acoustic improvisation that created in Austria and Germany at the same. This fresh vision is recorded on Muets, the next recording by his trio Klaxon Gueule (with Falaise and Alexandre St-Onge)."
