"Burn the furniture is a two-headed musical project imagined by Louis Beaudoin-de la Sablonniere and Eric Normand. Eric and Louis have known each other for many years and share an interest in each other's creations despite the fact that they evolve in very different genres and backgrounds and that they live more than 500 km from each other. other.

In addition to liking to improvise together, the two composers share a record bulimia and a passion for contemporary jazz (among others). Each time they meet, they invite different musicians to explore their musical universe, to give life to the melodic and simple compositions that the two musicians prepare in lead pencil, on scattered sheets, during the months between their meetings. The music of the ensembles is both modern and simple, abstract, but meditative and nourished by a common passion for the jazz guitar, from Jim Hall to Bill Frisell, from Rene Thomas to Brandon Ross."-Tour de Bras / Circum-Disc (translated by Google)

"Eric Normand is an improviser, bassist, instrument designer, composer, songwriter, singer and record and concert producer. He defines himself as an epidisciplinary musician, a free electron driven by its yearning for meetings. As an improviser, he develop a personal and radical playing on a homemade electric bass equipped with mics and objects feedbacking and vibrating in small electronic devices, creating electric flux interrupted by the instrumental gesture. With this set, he prefer to play duets, with Jim Denley (flute and sax), Philippe Lauzier (bass clarinet and sax), Sébastien Cirotteau (trumpet), Pierre-Yves Martel (viola de gamba and electronic), Jean-Luc Guionnet (saxophone), in addition of several spontaneous encounters.

He also play in bands involved in a more specific musical genre as danced poetry with BABABA, instrumental theatre with Le Veau/ The Veal, songs with Les Pitounes and Éric Normand Chante and folk music with The Surruralits and RRRRoyal Canadian Free Form Folk Experience. Interested in collective creation and orchestral improvisation, he lead for seven years the GGRIL, a 15 pieces band that have worked with composers such as Evan Parker, Jean Derome, Robert Marcel Lepage and Michael Fischer. His music has been programmed by or performed in several festivals in Canada , Australia and Europe. It have also been broadcasted by Radio-Canada, Australian Broadcasting Corporation, CBC, Radio-Grenouille, and several college radio stations."

"Tom Jacques: Multi-instrumentalist and sound artist

Tom Jacques is a multi-instrumentalist and sound artist. His work evolves between composition, improvisation, performance and sound device design, mainly in contemporary music, jazz, and percussion. For the last 5 years, he has been working with various artists and technicians in order to make his own musical instruments and sound installations. This approach allows him to explore unique musical universes that are unattainable with conventional instruments.

Tom Jacques stands out among Quebec's new breed of creative artists. Many of his personal projects and musical ensembles have been acknowledged and supported by the Conseil des Arts et Lettres du Québec through its Bas-Saint-Laurent arts and literature program and its Bas-Saint-Laurent territorial partnership program . He is also supported by the Canada Council for the Arts , and is the recipient of the Bas-Saint-Laurent Best Newcomer Award.

Tom is the Artistic Director of the percussion trio Bascaille, a co-artistic director of the jazz quartet Manta, and a member of the GGRIL (Grand Groupe Régional d'Improvisation LIbre, which means "large regional free improvisation group". He regularly collaborates with artists of all stripes as a musician, composer, and consultant. In 2017, he exhibited a sound device entitled "Comment Où le Son" at a travelling exhibition of the organization Voir à l'Est, and a follow-up entitled "Trajet Pas Pareil" at the 2018 Festival International de Musique Actuelle de Victoriaville (FIMAV).

This young artist is strongly involved in the cultural community. Currently president of Arte Tracto and director of Culture du Bas-Saint-Laurent, he helped set up Garage à musique de la Haute-Gaspésie, a pilot project inspired by Montréal's GAM, which uses music to help young people lessen the negative impacts of their harsh living conditions. The GAM's services are free."
