Montreal/Actuelle players Sylvie Chenard on guitar and voice, Alexander Dubuc on bass, Cathy Heyden on sax, and Miriodor's Remi Leclerc on drums, with all providing electronics, in an encompassing ea-improv journey that balances acoustics with sonic environments and wonderfully controlled chaos.

Chenard, Sylvie / Alexandre Dubuc / Cathy Heyden / Remi Leclerc

Chenard, Sylvie / Alexandre Dubuc / Cathy Heyden / Remi Leclerc: Allochtone (Tour de Bras)

Label: Tour de Bras    
Released in: Canada    

Trippy and granular improvisations in search of a balance between delicate noise-making and collective drive from this mix of Montreal Actuelle improvisers, including Remi LeClerc of Miriodor. The tracks are short and focused, and the sequencing of the performances add depth and a sense of journey to the album as a whole. Starting with a dark and complex sonic tapestry, the pieces build to a wonderfully controlled chaos, all the while presenting superb solo opportunities for each player. A great example of building cathartic improvisation using modern electronic instrumentation.
