|Pierre Tanguay is resident drummer for most Ambiances Magnétiques projects. Tom Walsh has shown his worth playing with Pierre Cartier as well as Jean Derome’s supergroup Les Dangereux Zhoms. Tanguay and Walsh have been playing together for over a dozen years ( ! ) now and have, notably, performed in festivals from Toronto to Paris and in various musique actuelle series throughout Québec.
Of minimalist construction, the music of “Midi tapant” is both spontaneous and through-composed. It is swarming with sensations and suggestions of colors, and alternates between moments of sheer intensity and lighter sound. This is an enjoyable take on ambient music from two accomplished musicians.
