Listening Diary

François Couture, Monsieur Délire, October 27, 2011

The vagrancy of Michel F Côté’s project Mecha Fixes Clocks continues: after an album on alien8 and one on &records, the third opus is now out on Ambiances Magnétiques. Recorded last year at Studio 270, this CD features a new expanded line-up (Côté, Freedman, Lauzier, Epps, Zubot, René, Thiessen, Martel, St-Onge, Falaise, Tétreault). The music is still as mysterious and shapeshifting as before: textural improvisation, occasional suggestions of rhythmical and melodic elements, confluences of synergetic ideas giving the impression not of chaos but of a highly complex compositional will. Different than and on par with the first two albums. I wish long life and ongoing renewal to this great project!
