Cobra 2017- Improv@Cirmmt@Cafe Resonance

Cobra(1984) by John Zorn Cobra is an unpublished but recorded and frequently performed musical composition by John Zorn that was conceived as a system with very detailed rules but with no pre-conceived sequence of events, or game piece, for a group of musical improvisers and a prompter. Zorn completed Cobra on October 9, 1984. The composition consists of a set of cues notated on cards, and rules corresponding to the cues that direct the players what to do. The number of players, instrumentation, and length of the piece is indeterminate. Because there is no traditional musical notation and the players improvise, the piece may sound radically different from performance to performance.

Musicians from CIRMMT - 14 instruments and electronics

Carbou/Graham : IMPULSE + The VISIT

Thomas and Patrick share an almost telepathic rapport, blending spontaneous improvisation, electronic looping, Brazilian and Indian musical influences, to create both ecstatic groove pieces and dream-like soundscapes. The duo uses an array of instruments, including custom 8-string guitar, cuatro, bouzouki, cajon, frame drums, berimbau, udu and metal percussion that are augmented by hypnotic vocals & samplers. The Visit, comprised of cellist Raphael Weinroth-Browne and vocalist Heather Sita Black, is a musical dialogue that transcends genres and idioms. Combining the structures and instrumentation of classical chamber music with the emotional and rhythmic weight of metal, their lengthy, through-composed pieces conjure sonic worlds in which listeners can immerse themselves. The duo has garnered virtually unanimous praise for their debut album Through Darkness Into Light, an almost impossibly beautiful release [...] that should appeal to fans of both metal and classical music.” Their performances at esteemed festivals such as Wave-Gotik Treffen in Leipzig, Germany, Nouvelle Prague in Prague, Czech Republic, and the 21C Festival in Toronto’s Koerner Hall have been met with overwhelmingly positive responses. With a rare combination of virtuosity, emotional intensity, and genre-defying innovation, The Visit is making their mark on the international stage as they forge a musical path all their own.

St-Roch Quartet + 2

Active on the Quebec City jazz scene since 2012, the St-Roch Quartet released its first EP, Clocher Penché , in Quebec City and Montreal in April of 2015. The rich cultural scene of Quebec’s St-Roch neighbourhood was the main inspiration for Alexandre Leblanc (upright bass), Olivier Lepage-Applin (saxophone), Samuel Gaudreault (guitar) and Edouard Poliquin-Michaud (drums) for their four song EP. This first release offers an accessible instrumental jazz, where each song represents a distinctive trait of the neighbourhood. Since its inception, the main focus of the group has been to foster a rich interplay between each musician as well as to create a cohesive sound for each song. Their compositions are built so that a main idea evolves in each section of the song while emphasizing the improvisational talents of each of the musicians. As such, the group aims to captivate and surprise the listener all throughout the listening experience. In 2013 they took part in the semifinals of the Jazz en Rafale new talent contest, in 2014 they played at Beauport’s Jazz'art festival and in September 2015, they were awarded the first prize in the new talent category of the Festi Jazz International de Rimouski. This show will feature arrangements for sextet of the band's original compositions.

Adam O'Farrill's Stranger Days

Led by trumpeter and composer Adam O'Farrill, Stranger Days is an ensemble with an eclectic sound, that is cohesive and unified, yet thrives on the individuality of the members' voices. O'Farrill and the rest of the band members deliver original compositions that have a narrative ebb and flow, while the band also recreates the music of artists as varied as Gabriel Garzon-Montano, Kenny Dorham, and even reaches into the obscurity of indigenous Mexican music. In Stranger Days, there is joy, humor, sadness, and everything in between- in other words, it is music.
The rest of the band is comprised of Chad Lefkowitz-Brown on tenor sax, Walter Stinson on bass, and Zack O'Farrill on drums. The band released its first album, Stranger Days, on Sunnyside Records, in April 2016. Nate Chinen of the NYTimes wrote in his review: “Marshaling a sharp band of his peers — Chad Lefkowitz-Brown on tenor saxophone; Walter Stinson on bass; and Zack O’Farrill, his older brother, on drums — Mr. O’Farrill establishes both a firm identity and a willful urge to stretch and adapt.”
The band has performed at The Jazz Gallery, BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center, Yale University, the Lilypad, and in 2017 will be performing at the 2017 NYC Winter Jazz Fest, 2017 Friehofer's Saratoga Jazz Festival, Cornell University, and more.

Samuel Bonnet Quartet Oriental Blue

« Oriental Blue » is the latest project of Montreal-based, Israeli-French acoustic guitarist Samuel Bonnet. Made of ten original compositions specifically written for his quartet, it takes the audience on a poetic journey inspired by different musical traditions form the Middle-East, North-Africa, Spain (Flamenco, Klezmer, Gnawa…) and the Americas (Jazz, Latin…), tracing a parallel between the jazz-blues characteristic melodic inflection : the « blue note » and its oriental cousin : the « melisma ».
But this project also has a visual dimension, as « Oriental Blue » also designates a color : the « ultramarine » blue, made from the Lapis-Lazuli, a precious stone. prized by painters and jewellers since antiquity for its intensity.
Distinguished by an acoustic and intimate format, the Samuel Bonnet Quartet has performed concerts and tours in Canada, the United States and Israel, and won a « Coup de Coeur Vision Diversity / Place Arts Prize » at the Montreal’s 2015 Vision Di- versity showcase, and has been selected, among 9 pan-Canadian emerging band, to be part of the 2016 Grand Prix Jazz TD competition, playing an outdoor show at the 2016 Montreal International Jazz Festival.
