François Couture, Monsieur Délire, Monday, January 31, 2011

The 2009 edition of the Canadian Electroacoustic Community’s Jeu de temps/Time’s Play competition included a German section in association with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Electroakustische Musik. Consequently, the Cache 2009 compilation (which culls the finalists’ submissions) is a double album, one CD featuring the Canadian participants, the German ones being included on disc 2. It’s no patriotism on my part, but I feel like the Canadian selection is clearly superior. Syncrétisme by Guillaume Barrette, Manège I by Félix Lachance and Frette by Charles Quevillon stand out for the overall quality of the composition and their strand of humour. However, I was expecting more from Olivier Girouard’s Suite_04, rather long and monotonous. On the German side, I prefer Vertikalzeit by Nicolas Wiese. Overall, Cache 2009 is a very fine vintage, stronger than the 2007 or 2008 crops.
