We also invite you to stay tuned... In the next weeks, we will unveil a lot of information about the 33rd FIMAV, which will be held from May 18 to 21, 2017!
Thursday, November 17, 2016 (Victoriaville, QC) – Last week Les Disques VICTO officially released Musica Elettronica Viva’s Symphony No. 106 at a live performance of the group in New York (USA) and at the Music Unlimited Festival in Wels (Austria). Symphony No. 106 was recorded live at the 32nd Festival International de Musique Actuelle de Victoriaville (FIMAV), on the 22nd of May 2016. It is Les Disques VICTO’s 129th production. The CD features a concert-length spontaneous composition by Frederic Rzewski (piano, voice), Richard Teitelbaum (keyboard, computer), and Alvin Curran (keyboard, computer, shofar). From 1966 till 2016, from Rome to Victoriaville... last May, MEV was celebrating 50 years of creativity.
Just a few days following the worldwide release of this album, the Victoriaville-based record label is also celebrating as it turns 30 years old! Les Disques VICTO’s inaugural production, Nous Autres by Fred Frith and René Lussier, was recorded live at the 4th edition of FIMAV in October 1986.
