Flammèches is a six-piece band of the most adventurous musicians on the Montréal “musique actuelle” scene. Noisy, theatrical and colourful, this ensemble toys with Dadaist poetry, “art brut” and naïve art, daily-life sounds old and new, traditional songs and astrological tunes… allthewhile referencing pop, jazz and contemporary music along the way. Flammèches consists of two sax players, two percussionists and two noisicians who all vocalize too. The result is something of a happening. Flammèches’s performers are in turn composers and bandleaders. The group makes use of every sound instrument or material available in order to manufacture or question music.
