Les larmes d’un vaurien, 6m05s [excerpt]
Track 2 from Douleur sourde
CD: Ambiances Magnétiques (2004) AM 129

Ambiances Magnétiques presents the debut album from sculptor, musician and performing artist Paul Grégoire. "Douleur Sourde" is a CD of songs. The music is slow and melodious, and often borrowed from a known repertoire. Lyrics are unique, occasionally anecdotal, always sensitive, and present a certain level of reflection on social matters and a touch of humor, while remaining dark.

Paul’s backing musicians are: Drae Rival and his highly unique guitar playing, with unusual and unexpected chords; drummer Jonas Slowenski, whose philosophical slowness could not better match the spirit of the album; René Lussier, who plays all the instruments in two songs: he handles guitar, bass, percussion, feet, and whistling; Paul Hubert’s vitality, his extremely energetic guitar playing; Fred Boudreault who, with his doublebass, contributes to the gloomy, rumbling side of the music; Jean Derome, responsible for the beautiful and delicate arrangements and also one gripping solo; and finally Michel F Côté, who plays drums on almost every song, but who also coordinated the project and without whom this album would not exist today.

A multidisciplinary artist, Paul Grégoire has been active in the fields of sculpture, music, literature, and performance since 1970. Naturally, he took care of the album sleeve, which includes a booklet with lyrics and illustrations for all the songs. "I wanted to leave my mark, but like with certain exhibitions or performances put together to sum things up, I needed to complete a cycle and summarize a few years of pleasure and work in music." -Paul Grégoire.

Douleur sourde is a unique, moving, unclassifiable album.
