Las stable es stable (1999), 4m57s [excerpt]
Track 1 from Agrégats
CD: Ambiances Magnétiques (2007) AM 167

Agrégats presents 13 pieces orchestrated for acoustic instruments, with a touch of electronics, performed by a shapeshifting ensemble directed by Guido Del Fabbro. A tentet at its largest, this group brings together individuals from various generations and musical backgrounds, all highly talented performers and improvisers. Flautist Jean Derome and Pierre Tanguay on percussion and objects are pillars of the local “musique actuelle” scene and renown jazzmen; accordionist Luzio Altobelli, clarinetist Pierre-Emmanuel Poizat (both from Manouche and Fanfare Pourpour), and clarinetist Guillaume Bourque (Manouche, Lara), are well versed in world and pop music; trombonist Nicolas Therrien plays jazz and Brazilian music; Philippe Brault on doublebass works in pop music; cellist Sheila Hannigan plays tango, classical music, and pop; drummer Stefan Schneider (Bell Orchestre, Iks, Jorane) does modern jazz and post-rock. The ensemble is rounded up by Guido Del Fabbro on violin and electronics.

The music, mirroring the group’s lineup, combines several musical currents, without ever forcing them into the melting pot. Guido Del Fabbro’s work as an arranger focuses on the possible combinations of tones highlighting the melodic aspect of the repertoire, which has a foot in traditional folk music and another in avant-rock territory. An intense work performed by an unmatched ensemble, whose conductor will definitely surprise you.
