”The two LP [TNZR054] sides total just over thirty minutes, providing a complex web of multithreaded intensity, a whirlwind of sound continuously unfolding at a frenetic pace. All available digits are hectically engaged in striking, sawing, and pounding every surface of the instrument simultaneously. Lines of choked notes interweave with a bombardment of percussive textures, and together with the low cello tones create the illusion of an improvised noise trio. On the cassette [LDE054], Alexandre St-Onge and Jean-Sébastien Truchy appropriately employ the same extended techniques while adding their own twists. St-Onge somehow manages to be even more intense, thumping away on his bass in an all-out assault. Truchy is more relaxed only by comparison, alternating bristly sections with quieter moments that overlay distinct strands in orchestral fashion. Overall, this is a coherent package that rediscovers the past while demonstrating a robust continuation of Quebecs tradition of improvised music.” – Lawrence Joseph (MusicWorks).

Artist: GAGNON, BERNARD
Title: Musique Électronique (1975-1983)
Format: LP
Label: Tenzier
Country: Canada
Price: $21.00
"Born in 1953, Bernard Gagnon is a product of Quebecs late 1960s underground music scene. In 1973, the Montreal-based musician turned to music theory, studied with Iannis Xenakis and met John Cage. That year, his band Mergélèpe-Guorismogue joined Montreals Atelier de musique expérimentale (AME), an organization created by Raymond Gervais, Michel Di Torre, Yves Bouliane and Robert M. Lepage to promote improvised music. Two years later, Gagnon began experimenting with electronic sounds as a member of Kevin Austins MetaMusic. At the turn of the decade, he studied under alcides lanza, Mariano Etkin and Paul Pedersen. It is then that he composed and recorded his first electroacoustic pieces using the electronic music studio at Mcgill University. In 1981, he was awarded both the CAPAC Hugh Le Caine Award and Radio-Canadas Prix national de composition électro-acoustique. Gagnon then joined Cham Pang, a multimedia electro collective, and reconnected with Lepage with whom he recorded and performed. The 1980s saw Gagnon turn to musique actuelle explorations which culminated with groups such as Stylo (with Lepage and Jean Derome) and La Flore Laurentienne (Lepage, Derome and Guillaume Dostaler among others). Tenzier is proud to announce the release of an album dedicated to Bernard Gagnons electronic music (1975-1983)." - Tenzier.

Artist: LE QUATUOR DE JAZZ LIBRE DU QUEBEC
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Tenzier
Country: Canada
Price: $20.00
"Formed in 1967, the Quatuor de jazz libre du Québec (QJLQ) was a force to be reckoned with in post-Quiet Revolution Quebec. Between 1967 and 1970, the QJLQ shared the stage with artists such as Louise Forestier, Robert Charlebois and l’Infonie. It promoted improvised music as a means of bringing about real social and cultural changes in Quebec. In 1970, the QJLQ established a colonie artistique in Val-David. It also acquired land – the Petit Québec Libre – in an effort to offer artists and political activists a communal place to exchange ideas. From 1970 onward, Quebec’s first free jazz ensemble turned to contemporary avant-garde music for further inspiration. As the decade unfolded, the QJLQ became more radical both musically and politically. Tenzier’s new release constitutes a rare opportunity to hear the quartet at its most potent. This session was recorded at Radio-Canada’s Studio 13 on 13 May, 1973." -Tenzier

Artist: OLEARY, ETIENNE
Title: Films et Musiques Originales dEtienne OLeary (1966- 1968)
Format: LP
Label: Tenzier
Country: Canada
Price: $18.00
"Etienne OLearys filmography consists essentially of three experimental films completed in Paris between 1966 and 1968. Day Tripper, Homeo (aka Homeo: Minor Death: Coming Back from Going Home) and Chromo Sud constitute a cinema of resistance. These brutally personal and subversive films form a body of work with few precedents. OLearys contribution to French underground cinema is not, however, limited to the introduction of a new cinematographic language. The potency of his oeuvre resides in three unsettlingly evocative soundtracks composed by the director himself. This music is now available on vinyl for the very first time (180 gr LP 300 copies)." - Tenzier.
