“Il y a seulement des apparitions” is available

Another multi-layered journey from Montréal’s Vincent Bergeron, “Il y a seulement des apparitions” continues his exploration of cutup mixing techniques and his own idiosyncratic singing. The result is a rich “spasmacousmatic” experience, a surreal engagement with Bergeron’s musical collaborators and the themes he grapples with.

Download ($7) is available at the Spectropol Bandcamp site.

new Vincent Bergeron coming 8/7/13

“Il y a seulement des apparitions” will be Bergeron’s second release on Spectropol (the first was Elle avait Raison Hathor, as Berger Rond). As with all of his albums, its a remarkably expressive and arresting experience as he finds still new pathways using cutup and mashing techniques (with diverse collaborators) and voice.

Here’s a video for “Apparitions” from the album.

new Vincent Berger Rond: Elle avait raison Hathor

Out today (4/3). Inspired by mythology, this collection explores notions of womanhood. With the Quebec-based composer’s characteristic “spasmacousmatic” cutup textures guiding form, this is an electroacoustic chamber music that is both disorienting and utterly engaging.
