Infininiment Klaxon Gueule

Prix Opus 2009-10: Disque de l’année — Finaliste

Throughout the 13 minimalist tunes the horns extend or amplify improvisations from the band’s core trio The WholeNote, Canada

It is very rewarding and enjoyable to listen to all short movements and actions by the different players, and to experience how they intertwine into a strong nucleus of linear moving music. Vital, Netherlands

A microscope aimed at the asperities,
And breaths trip upside-down breaking.
That explains the impact of those looks singing and burning bright.
The rumbles, the infinitely sounding,
A friend, a scream, following the threshold.

This trio formed in September 1995, and it hasn’t given up since. Bavards, a debut double album in ’97, Muets, its follow-up in ’99, and Grain in 2002 form a first triptych produced by Ambiances Magnétiques. In 2004, Chicken, an album of songs (but not really) is released by &records. After a five-year hiatus, the trio returns to Ambiances Magnétiques to release their fifth album, Infiniment (AM 194), which also signals a new acoustic focus. As was the case on Grain and Bavards, KG has augmented its core trio (drums, guitar, doublebass) with a wind trio (Jean Derome, Philippe Lauzier, and Gordon Allen). After standing the test of time, the close-knitted musical relationship between Côté, Falaise, and St-Onge is transcending genres and schools. Their separate music backgrounds encompass a wide spectrum of esthetics and a commanding level of versatility. Weddings, baptisms, funerals, engagements, graduations, dances, executions, bachelor parties, circumcisions — they did it all. Now, their hope is to give their first concert in an orbital station very soon. They are available for any occasion: flatf@videotron.ca
