Dernier cri (2007), 4m22s [excerpt]
Track 1 from Pas de deux
CD: Ambiances Magnétiques (2008) AM 175

This meeting with Fred Frith was a jubilation from start to finish. One of those precious moments where trust rules and energy flows. We had never played together, but it was bound to happen. The initial impetus for this duo came from a Carte blanche offered by Pierre Dumont of the Festival des musiques de création in Saguenay. To me, it seemed appropriate to honor that Carte blanche with this project with Fred. And as long as we were dragging him to Québec, we had to take the opportunity to present this “rare” duo in Montréal, at La Sala Rossa. This CD is not the faithful reproduction of one of these concerts, but a collage featuring highlights from both evenings. Fred and I have mixed and edited separately, from the live recordings. I have worked from a superimposition of the two concerts, while Fred worked on stripping them down. Since I did not have the distance necessary to make the final editing decisions, I asked DAME label’s honcho (and my dear friend and super-colleague) Joane Hétu to bring the CD project to a close. So here you have a work of excellent audio quality that faithfully communicates the energy and telepathy Fred and I experienced together. —Danielle Palardy Roger
