La Bête / The Beast Within Jean Derome

I recommend this disc highly. Musicworks, Canada

La bête can guarantee an edifying musical experience to the courageous at heart. Splendid E-Zine, USA

For this album, Jean Derome was commissioned by Montréal’s O Vertigo dance troupe and their production “The Beast Within,” directed by Ginette Laurin.

Here, Derome treats us with an exploration of animalistic qualities, whether in violence, sensuality or spirituality. The Beast Within is a fresh, rhythmic album full of changing textures, evoking the weaving of fabrics, suspiration, spaces of spectacle such as the cabaret, the circus and our urban environment… Derome’s music dynamically intermingles improvisation and composition while employing, almost exclusively, acoustic instruments for their organic and stratingly real presence.

La Bête, the Beast Within; music which inhabits the body and moves the soul.
