The Suoni Per Il Popolo festival will take place on June 1-30, 2007 in Montréal. One evening will be dedicated to Ambiances Magnétiques’s artists on June 17, 2007: Marie-Soleil Bélanger + Normand Guilbeault + Ensemble SuperMusique + Martin Tétreault + Nous perçons les oreilles (Joane Hétu, Jean Derome) will be at Casa del popolo for the occasion.
Nous perçons les oreilles, the duo of Jean Derome and Joane Hétu, will move its fierceness, energy and irreverence to Italy from March 1 — 8, 2005. The duo will give concerts and workshops with Gianni Lenoci in several Italian cities. The duo will give concerts at Bari’s La Taverna del Maltese on March 1, at Monopoly’s Chiesa Di San Pietro on March 2 and 3, at Rome’s Rialto on March 4, at Meldona’s Areasismica on March 5, and lastly at Venice’s Teatro Fondamenta Nuove on March 8.
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.”
