eD: Bruits, 3rd release by Yves Daoust

Wednesday, January 16, 2002 New releases

“… the musicality of this electroacoustic piece lands me in pure auditory pleasure!” (Sonoloco Record Reviews, Sweden) Third Yves Daoust album on the empreintes DIGITALes label, Bruits (Noises) plunges in the reappropriation of everyday sounds dear to the composer since Anecdotes (1991), his first CD. Human voices, musical instruments and the unnumerable sonic fragments of our daily lives are the metal Daoust uses to forge caskets for his little gems. Inspiration for the title track, the city of Montréal is the arena from which the source material emerge, meet and clash. Automobile rumblings, jubilant crowds and children playgrounds burst out from the digital treatments in a touching and evocative aural portrait.
