HEROES

published on December 18, 2019

­­

We can finally reveal our next project! It is an honor to have been invited for a second consecutive year to play in Nantes, not only to present several shows, but to create a brand new project to celebrate #Beethoven250.

We are delighted to present a first glimpse of HEROES, a music and video creation composed by a super duo: Myriam Boucher (with whom we collaborated for My Backyard, Somewhere) and Pierre-Luc Lecours!

Leading up to the show's premiere in Nantes in January 2020 (more details to come), we will be in creative residency at the Centennial Theater in Lennoxville - we will present the fruits of our work to the public on January 22nd. Come and join us if you can, it'll be something to see and hear!

HAPPY 1 YEAR

published on November 17, 2019

­­

To celebrate the 1 year anniversary of the release of our album No Time for Chamber Music, we are sharing a very special track that inspired the title of the album but could not be included on the official release: here is our take on the 3rd movement of Berio’s Sinfonia. Originally written for orchestra and 8 amplified voices, this movement is a musical collage, full of quotes and references (Mahler, Stravinsky, Debussy, Berg, Ravel, Boulez, to name a few), using the Scherzo from Mahler’s 2nd symphony as its framework. It features text taken from several sources - spoken, whispered, shouted, and sung by each of us - the most prominent being Samuel Beckett’s The Unnamable. The text and the music are a sort of stream of consciousness; all of the voices, instrumental or vocal, come together as the inner dialogue of an unnamed spirit. 

 

Special recognition goes to our dear friend Jen Thiessen, musician extraordinaire, for her incredible performance as main narrator on this track.

We are already very happy to be part of a community of artists so inspiring and creative here in Quebec - and now we are even happier thanks to this nomination at the Prix Opus for our album with our good friend Gustav Mahler! No Time for Chamber Music has been nominated for Album of the Year: Classical, Romantic, Post-romantic, and Impressionist music. Bravo to our amazing team!

IT'S A WRAP

The season has ended for collectif9. And what a season!

Some numbers to express the magnitude of the last 12 months: we played in 15 countries and provinces (or states) - FIFTEEN! a record for us - we totaled 48 concerts and activities for over 10,000 people - thanks to you all! - this included 17 activities in the community that reached more than 2,000 people - we worked with 29 collaborators and guest artists (in addition to the 9 of us and our own Rufat).
...and we can’t forget the launch of our 2nd album - and we are still standing!

Come celebrate with us on June 17th at The Diving Bell!
