Nicolas Bernier + Simon Trottier – The Market Fresh

 

Nicolas Bernier and Simon Trottier are two talented musicians from Montreal, Canada. Nicolas is an electroacoustic artist and founder of Ekumen collective more recently famous for his live performance “La Chambre des Machines” with Martin Messier invited in festivals around the world including Transmediale (Germany) and Sonar (Spain).
Simon has collaborated with a number of instrumental rock and improvised music groups, and has accompanied pop artists such as Québec’s French pop duet Tricot Machine and Halifax’s spooky folk duo, Ghost Bees. He is now a member of Ferriswheel with Torngat’s multi-instrumentalist Mathieu Charbonneau, as well as Toronto’s haunted blues-folk group Timber Timbre.
Together they released two excellent EPs on 12rec (“… et retrouve en foret” and “Objet abandonne en mer“) and in August 2009, during the Sound Travels Festival in Toronto, they performed an improvisation gig in a market fresh during the day and this one-track EP is the recording of that show.

Because of its improvisational nature this EP is deeply different from everything you already heard from them.
The perfect mix of guitar melodies and electronic sounds which was the trademark of their previous songs it’s here expanded and dilated into a unique fluxes.
The brilliant combination is still there, but this 19 minutes long recording shows a very different approach to the sound and leaves more space to experimentation and sound design.
