Descriptions, Reviews, &c.
Bruire / La Flore Laurentienne / Les Granules / Justine / Locomotive

"Une théorie des ensembles, a convivial need, a legitimate happening. Essentially, there are two reasons behind this new production: the release of a compact disc recorded live (a first for Ambiances Magnétiques), and the release of a record featuring all the members of Ambiances Magnétiques and their associates.

The result: 75 minutes of music; 5 groups: Bruire, La Flore Laurentienne, les Granules, Justine and Locomotive; 15 musicians; and 17 previously unreleased tracks recorded live in February 1992 at the Maison de la Culture Frontenac in Montréal. A thorough delight. "
