In the Press…

After taking part in countless groups and collaborations, it is now time for Diane Labrosse to present her first solo CD for Ambiances Magnétiques. With her digital sampler, she records sounds which are alternately crude and gentle, appealing and irritating. “Face cachée des choses” (“Hidden Side of Things”) hence becomes an inventory of appliances, a layout of tools, a bunch of objetcs, a series of mysterious, endearing treatments.

Travelling log, solitary walks, evenings of euphoria, peaceful nights, moments of anxiety, ordinary afternoons, a touch of exhibitionism and a bunch of frogs. A user friendly music, electrodomestic, organic organs, small animal ensembles, unknown soloists…

“Like the turtle, I work slowly and carry my house around with me. I have put it all on this record, but without the piano, no musical instruments. Only a hidden side of things.”
