He founded squintfuckerpress with Christof Migone and he plays in quite a few bands which released several albums : Et SansK. The 3 - Alexandre St-Onge - Nude de chose de même behind the scenes is Gordon Allen.
But Allen is a far busier man than his carefree, joyous demeanor might suggest. Check this out. CKUT was there with their live broadcasting gear. Six bands were slated to play.
Their layered, richly textured mix of acoustic improvisation and electronics sent a hush over the hundred or more gathered. Even the loud students next to me stopped talking 3 - Alexandre St-Onge - Nude de chose de même I saw their facial expressions change to concentrated curiosity as they craned their necks to see how those three musicians were making such otherworldly sounds.
Juste Claudette is no exception to this fundamental preoccupation. Indeed, Claudette for the intimates is all about groove. Yes, groove as in looped patterns, but also as in tap your foot and bob your head. Actually, it is worth emphasizing that it took place on Sunday at midnight at the CEGEP de Victoriaville, one of the three venues used by the festival, as anyone who has visited the small Bois-Francs town would know.
While Juste Claudette dedicates itself to groove and rhythm, there was plenty to maintain interest and loads for the brain to chew on then process.
The addition of a second drummer allowed for some fascinating rhythmic events to occur. Second, Juste Claudette made it clear that rhythm and groove is not just a drums and bass thing. Sure, in some pieces, Hold Me Tight - The Beatles - The Beatles Collection (Vinyl, LP, Album, LP, Album, LP, Album, LP, Al drums and the bass would indeed start a rhythmic pattern and stick to it while the others instruments build upon it.
On the one hand, the somewhat festive and groovy aspects of Juste Claudette were a welcome relief at this point. Remember, this was the 20th concert festival-goers had witnessed in a three and a half day period, including some inevitably dry and less-successful ones. On the other hand, in past years, the volume of the midnight concerts has often been a problem in that the loudness became an obstacle to a full appreciation of the music.
Unfortunately, Juste Claudette was no exception. To put it bluntly, the volume was deafening. It makes no doubt that such a group can benefit from some amplification, but in this case, it actually had a negative impact. First, it simply was unbearable without earplugs. This said, on a strictly musical level, Juste Claudette definitely turned out to be one of the most enjoyable concert of the 25th Festival International de Musique Actuelle de Victoriaville. Although the event, which runs at the Scotiabank Dance Centre until Smells Like Teen Spirit - Various - Time Of Your Life Series Volume I - IV October 22features non-Francophone artists such as the U.

The argument Labrosse makes is that few people confine their listening to just one genre, so why should musicians suffer self- imposed limitations on what they play? Her own career reflects this wide-open attitude. This is where we got involved together quite a few years ago, maybe in or or whatever. We did a project where he was working with rubber tubes and compressors and bird whistles, things of that nature, so it was a noisy kind of culture.
That started him doing shows, or doing performances ; before that he was more of a sound installer, working in galleries and things like that. Following Labrosse on Thursday will be the cross-country quartet of Pierre Tanguay, Bernard Falaise, Dylan van der Schyff, and Ron Samworth, a group she describes as well worth hearing. Close observers of the Vancouver scene will note that our own creative musicians are capable of a very similar range of styles ; perhaps the gulf between East and West, between Francophone and Anglophone, is narrowing at last.
St-Onge studied double bass. A first album, Bavardscame out in on which St-Onge performs in a classic American free jazz style.
