Nous perçons les oreilles, the intimate duo of Jean Derome and Joane Hétu, will play at Ann Harbour’s upcoming Edgefest (MI) October 14, 2004. Just a few days before, on October 9, the duo will stop at the Parral’œil art center in Rimouski (Québec).
Joane Hétu (voice, saxophone) and Jean Derome (voice, saxophone, small instruments) will launch the last installement of their intimate duo Nous perçons les oreilles, the moving La vie, c’est simple (Life is Simple), with a concert June 13, 2002 at Casa del Popolo (Montréal). This event is part of the “Suoni Per Il Popolo” festival of new music.
An intimate and disconcerting duo composed of Joane Hétu (saxophone, voice) and Jean Derome (saxophone, flutes, small instruments, voice), Nous perçons les oreilles presents, four years after their eponymus album, all-new abstract and melancholic songs on La vie, c’est simple. As Joane puts it very clearly: “The result is related to our relationship. This is a work relationship that gives me a lot of liberty and assumes a lot of complicity. Nous perçons les oreilles are very short, naïve and humoristic songs accompanied by radical bruitist music.”
