Michel F Côté, better known as leader of Bruire, and Diane Labrosse, as active member of the group Justine, present Duo Déconstructiviste. Construct and deconstruct, like matching the pieces from different meccano sets… Deconstruct, then construct.

Based on improvisation, interactive listening and radical exploration, their music uses short phrases as part of the writing process, quoting some of their favorite artists and friends. They travel happily (and freely) frow new musical currents to contemporary writings and some more abstract ambiances.

Using a hybrid set-up of acoustic and electronic percussions wired to a portable DAT recorder, Côté is both rhythmical and melodic, colourful and eloquent. Labrosse, performing on digital sampler keyboard brings out melodies only to break them with her usual sense of humour and a certain notion of drama.

Duo Déconstructiviste was created at The Banff Centre for the Arts in the fall of 93.
