Not The Music feat. Joe McPhee - [excerpt 1]

Not The Music feat. Joe McPhee - [excerpt 2]

Together, Rimouski's Éric Normand and Montréal's Philippe Lauzier are Not The Music. Both found plenty of space for electroacoustic adventures and to explore the physicalities of their instruments — one was as likely to find Normand with ebow in hand, thwacking away at the body of his bass or Lauzier playing half a taken-apart bass clarinet as to see them take a more straight-forward approach. They were well-matched in these considerations of the plastic properties of their instruments with guest performer Joe McPhee joining them for the set on sax and pocket trumpet. Ranging from balloon parties to feedback fuzz to unexpected bursts of balladry, there was a joyful sense of freedom throughout the set.
