Started in 2022, this quartet of fabulous musicians plays an alloy of rhythm and drone with shards of nuanced improvisation and energetic freak-outs.
COLIN STETSON is a monster on the saxophone, with extended techniques that will keep you riveted. Using circular breathing and a microphone on his throat, he is able to unleash sonic tidal waves. But you already know that, since he is regularly featured at FIMAV.
On the other hand, it has been a long time since ELLIOTT SHARP (Carbon, Terraplane, Aggregat) came to Victoriaville. What a thrill it will be to reacquaint ourselves with his unique angular approach to the guitar!
BILLY MARTIN? Yep, the drummer from Medeski Martin & Wood! A seasoned drummer with jazz and funk influences and a renowned improviser, MARTIN is the groove guru in this band.
« Void Patrol » has been put together during the pandemic by percussionist PAYTON MACDONALD (Alarm Will Sound). His cyclical motifs on the marimba form the core of the band’s music, a core the other members will develop in every possible direction.
