|Duet composed of Jean Derome and Joane Hétu, Nous perçons les oreilles is two saxophones, two voices, two gargoyles, two satyrs; two mighty figures agitating, whistling, squeeking, scraping, blowing, biting and transforming music into incantation and a banquet of sound.
“This album basis of our work is songs and improvisation. Our songs speaks of our life. They are ordinary (like us) but not easy going (like her). We really love to improvise together. It is not easy to describe accuretaly what we do while improvising. It is very close to the human beast that we are.” — Jean Derome

In a carnival of madness bursting with imagination, these simple works range randomly between humorous, serious, chaotic, genius, and ear raising. Pops, clicks, shouts, cries, and whispers swirl around and through creative manipulations of language, poetry, and oral music. This is music that doesn't push boundaries; instead it simply creates new dimensions without boundaries. I think watching this music being made would be as exciting as listening to it!
