The 27th Annual Festival International de Musique Actuelle de Victoriaville

[…] Just a few weeks before the Victo Fest, a young trio from Quebec called La Part maudite came down and played a short set at our store (5/1/11) on an odd triple bill with the sound poetry of Jacques Demierre and a mostly Korean quartet. La Part maudite features Philippe Battikha on electric trumpet, Mivil Deschênes on electric bass and Patrick Dion on drums. Their set at Victo was much louder and more intense. Their bassist was often at the center of most of their pieces playing heavy fuzz bass riffs that were hypnotic and occasionally overwhelming. This trio really do not sound like any other band I’ve heard and are between categories with understated jazz, rock & prog influences. The trumpeter used a great deal of effects and distortion on his instrument, which worked most of the time yet gave him a bit of kazoo-like tone on occasion. There were few solos in their set so the music was more about mood and texture. There were some triumphant Crimson-like sections and they found a way to avoid the usual jazz/rock cliches that plague certain fusion bands. I look forward to seeing what they develop into next. […]
