ce franÃ§ois couture (french for this franÃ§ois couture, thereâ€™s a ton of them in quebec) is an experimental musician, improviser, and multi-instrumentalist based in st-faustin, quebec, canada. he came out of the music closet at age 38. He plays keyboards, theremin, percussion, and ukulele, but his main instrument is the mixing desk, which he uses without anything plugged in it, just ins in the outs, to sculpt rivers of controlled feedback. he formed the trio rocheleau/bussiÃ¨re/couture (or rbc) in late 2013 and joined the free improv/avant-rock band la forÃªt rouge in 2014. he also has ongoing duo projects with guitarist/violinist paul dolden and drummer david dugas dion. this franÃ§ois couture is also the music critic who wrote for all-music guide and the man who used to blog as monsieur dÃ©lire and produce/host the radio shows dÃ©lire musical and dÃ©lire actuel (cflx, sherbrooke, quebec).
