New Music. Newly Released Compact Discs

Juan Rodriguez, The Gazette, 4 octobre 2007

Pop explodes the avant-garde, and vice versa: both terms are rendered useless by the end of this spectacular album from the deep murk. Violinist and electronic tweaker Del Fabbro, recruited from the musique actuelle scene by Pierre Lapointe for his bestselling Forêt des mal aimés, returns the favour by bringing pop friends (including Lapointe bandleader Philippe Brault on doublebass) to join a tentet including Jean Derome (flyé flutes), Luzio Altobelli (accordion), Sheila Hannigan (corrosive cello), Pierre Tanguay (percussion, tools) in this densely textured project. Agrégat’s tightly structured tunes ooze melodramatic film noir music wallowing in shadows, circus music escaping its cage, fright night at the children’s hour, and twisted fanfares. Not a genteel note is to be found, but panache galore informs this sonically superb in-your-face production. (5/5)
