Pigeon Breeders with Not the Music

Thursday, March 21st

Join us for an amazing night of sonic exploration as local improvisors Pigeon Breeders join forces with visiting artists Not the Music from Montreal! Various combinations of guitars, electronics, ebass, soprano sax and bass clarinet take shape to form movements along each sonic journey. Each group will play a solo set, then combine forces for a third shared set.

Pigeon Breeders is an experimental improvisation music group who craft unique soundscapes blending ambient, electroacoustic, free improvisation, noise, and psychedelic elements. Originally a trio founded in 2011 by Will Scott and Myles Bartel with Tyler Harland (who departed in 2016) the group has frequently welcomed guest musicians including Scott Smallwood, Smokey, and Ghost Cars. Other collaborators have included Nate Wooley, Jung People, Chris Dadge, Bitter Fictions, Nate Waters, filmmaker Lindsay McIntyre, and dancers Gerry Morita, Jeannie Vandekerkhove, Tony Olivares, Max Hanic, and more.

Not the Music is cultivating a quite disciplined approach to noise making. The duo explore the time with unusual instrumental techniques and mysterious gestures. With their gentle noise and cracked linearity, the duo of Éric Normand & Philippe Lauzier enact a sound environment that is contemplative yet stands on the edge of the precipice; an environment in which the monsters of rough texture are tamed. Calling forth hidden lyricism from their instruments, Lauzier and Normand scrape their fingernails across the proverbial blackboard to exquisite effect. « The sound of what seems a 1000 violins being scraped simultaneously, but this duo also knows how to pull back, slow down and space out, such as in the second part. Tour de Bras? Tour de force is more like it. Excellent stuff. » — Vital (Pays-Bas)
