"Brilliant" — Free Jazz, Belgium
"… captivants départs de feu, craquements toniques et belles incandescences, voilà de quoi devenir pyromane!" — Revue & Corrigée, France
Torch! Sparkling sparks. The melting of metals is obtained by the heat energy released by an electric arc (improvisation?) That bursts in a protective atmosphere between a fusible electrode wire and the parts to be assembled. To create the aliage of the raw materials, it will be necessary that it warms more than the keyboard well tempered.
Torch! Sparkling soundings. What is the effect of an electric arc (improvisation?) That is erupts in an atmosphere of protection between a consumable electrode and the parts to be assembled. Making the raw materials will be more important then the Well-Tempered Keyboard.
Meeting of instrumentalists to practice as rigorous as radical. They distinguish themselves by their research of all the noise and expressive material of their respective instrument and by a total commitment in the improvisation. All attend the most varied music, electro-acutic musics, minimalist jazz or punk with the same sense of invention. Borrowing from all the music of today, they stand out by paying attention to the richness of the sounds and the depth of the atmospheres.
An exceptional free improvising quintet of Montreal & Quebec improvisers--bassist Eric Normand, drummer Michel F. Cote, and bass clarinetist Philippe Lauzier--with French clarinetist Xavier Charles and German trumpeter Franz Hautzinger, performing live during the 2016 Festival de Musique de Creation, creating fascinating commotion with incredible restraint.
