Ratchet Orchestra is both a distinctive Montréal institution and national standard bearer for a creative tradition. The WholeNote, Canada

Established in 1992 the eclectic, astounding, and sometimes mystifying Ratchet Orchestra serves as a meeting place for Montréal musicians interested in creating new and vibrant music. Many of the city’s most active and creative composers, instrumentalists and improvisers play in the ensemble. The band’s music explores the relationships and tensions between the composed and improvised, and the instinctive and intellectual. Director Nicolas Caloia’s compositions provide a structure for the musicians’ explosive solo and collective improvisations, showcasing the specific talents of his individual members.
