Ensemble Supermusique interprets six compositions, by the hands of Tétreault, St-Onge, Roger, Hétu and Derome. They are also the players of these pieces together with Émile Girared-Charest (violoncello),Vergil Sharkya (synthesizer), Michel F Coté (drums, microphones) and Guido del Fabbro (violin). The opening piece Malgré tout Face A is an work by Tétreault. Based on a straight and simple beat, sampled sounds, voice,s, etc. are put over it. Halfway after a break of silence, a narrator speaks with mellotron-like sounds in the background. Also in his second piece on this album, Malgré tout Face B experiments with beat. In Le fruit du hasard by Derome, rhythm and melody and not far way. In all other compositions we are dealing with far more abstract soundconstructions, built from a diversity of sounds, instruments and objects. An example of this is the piece SM: re-trait de l’abjection, the work I liked most. The ensemble uses noise-esthetics, sound-improvisation, sprechgesang, acoustic and electronic soundsources, etc, for well-defined excursions and compositions, that are far more than just an eclectic mix. But a new musical language.
