Barnyard Drama

This exciting, Toronto-based group takes a fresh look at improvising. They are an improvising duo that combine elements of song and soundscape. Christine's five octave range and extended voice techniques combined with Jean's use of drums and sounds from various sources (vinyl lp's and digital loops) make for a challenging and exciting performance.

Jazz, fairy tales, musique actuelle, songs, nursery rhymes,electro-avant-garde-new acoustic-tuvan-primpram-ambiant-music...These genres are combined to create what you might hear during a performance. Think Mahler and Wagner, slow it right down, add radio Istanbul and the tooth fairy ‘cause you know it's got to be sweet and creepy.
