La boutique des nouvelles musiques

Review

Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery, 30 janvier 2015

Sporadic sonic exchanges exploring guidelines, graphic scores, or completely improvised with an expansive instrumentation, La Règle was recorded between two residential basements on Berri Street, and live on a campus community radio station from 2011 to 2014 in various formations. None of the pieces feature all six members of Fünf simultaneously. What’s interesting about this Quebecois sextet is that they are all women and the liner notes doesn’t quite list their instrumentation other than amps, objects, homemade synths and oscillators, all DIY analog stuff. The sounds are carefully created, tapping on mics, humming, soft drones, static, German spoken word samples, test patterns, a busy signal, sniffles, quiet feedback, etc. The music unfolds organically and has a John Cage like vibe. The sounds do a good job of evoking a mood, like slowly changing scenery in a European art house film.
