La vie, c’est simple, new CD by Derome / Hétu duo

Thursday, March 21, 2002 New releases

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.”
