Tétreault’s Fantasy Realized

Wednesday, February 7, 2007 New releases

Snipettes! and Morceaux choisis were first released in 1992 as a limited-edition cassette, in a run of 250 numbered copies. This new CD is the result of an ideal collaboration between two record players (an automatic Garrard and a belt-driven Thorens) and presents playing performances of two invisible orchestras, formed by the sounds from Eddie Osborne’s album Baldwin Organ & Bongos and from contemporary music and musique concrète CDs. Snipettes! is a wonderful musical fantasy we rarely get the chance to witness, either on stage or en record.
