Les Poules present their latest project: Phénix
Hétu, Labrosse, and Roger have been working and playing together since 1980. Their collaboration is legendary, their musical exploration always avant-garde. They mix up synthetic and acoustic sounds, the crackling and humming of samplers, the churning and chafing of percussion, vocalization, and the mouth play and hissing of saxophones. The effect of these mixtures and soundscapes is extraordinary: they weave a fabric of sound whose instrumental threads the listener will sometimes find difficult to distinguish.
