Ça cogne

Frith + Roger; Fred Frith is back in Montreal, following a first meeting with Danielle Palardy Roger in the spring of 2006. A grand occasion where both musicians will project and share, on the spot, their essence, ideas, and understanding. Fred Frith, electric guitar & effects; Danielle Palardy Roger, drums & percussions. Release of the CD Pas de deux on Ambiances Magnétiques.

Côté + Ceccarelli, two unusual instrumentalists. Bored with the future and hurt by the past, two drummers meet and ask each other; what can we do when we’re just two drummers? “We can be vulgar” was their only answer. One thing is sure; things will get scratched and rubbed. Michel F Côté, acoustic & electronic percussions; Isaiah Ceccarelli, acoustic & electronic percussions. Release of the CD Vulgarités on Ambiances Magnétiques.

Tickets: $20 regular,$10 students, artists, seniors (plus charges).On sale at the door and on pre-sale at the Musée Juste pour rire ticket booth Information/Reservations: 514-845-2322

Y’ a du bruit dans ma cabane

Wednesday & Thursday, December 17-18, 2008 o 8;30 pm SAT - 1195 Saint-Laurent Blvd, Montreal

SuperMusique’s Grand Annual Concert, in an audio-visual set developed by ingenious designers; forewoman Joane Hétu and architects Jean Derome, Danielle Palardy Roger and Martin Tétreault.

Danielle Palardy Roger invites you to taste her cuisine in an audio meal, Martin Tétreault is offering you to relax in a comfy Sofa so Good, Jean Derome gets his library whispering for you, and Joane Hétu is exploring the piping. But the tour doesn’t end there, as there is plenty more rooms and nooks to visit in this house.

Quite a shack indeed, decorated by video artist David Emmanuel Fafard and lighting artist Alexandre Péloquin.

Seven members of Ensemble SuperMusique, all master musique actuelle performers and improvisers will play works that reveal the customized world of various rooms around a house. There will be a lot of noise in their shack!

With; forewoman Joane Hétu (saxophone & vocals), bricklayer Jean Derome (soprano saxophone, objects, flutes), painter Danielle Palardy Roger (drums), plumber Martin Tétreault (turntables), mason Pierre Tanguay (drums, objects), cabinet-maker Diane Labrosse (sampler, accordion), plasterer Pierre-Yves Martel (viola da gamba).

All major artists in the DAME/Ambiances Magnétiques catalogue - www.actuellecd.com
