The Peculiar Din From Vincent Bergeron's Cranium
A friend emailed me a link to Vincent Bergeron's music that he found through, of all places, MySpace. This friend has very particular and focused tastes- so I was excited to hear what he had to offer.
Canadian musician Vincent Bergeron's music is a perplexing sonic tapestry of strange sounds- as if a whole orchestra was equipped with record players and they randomly but precisely dropped the needle on various musical phrases. The music tumbles like a dust cloud as Bergeron croons- sounding a bit like Albert Marcoeur. The long compositions are rambling but focused- almost like a meditation on a single theme...a Trout Mask Replica sort of musical cubism.
