ce françois couture is an experimental musician, improviser, and multi-instrumentalist. he plays in la forêt rouge, square/sine, and rbc, and will release his debut as a “songwriter” in 2016. aubert couture is his 13-year-old son, a non-musician with a keen ear for free improvisation.
as the new year set in and the new year’s eve libations faded out, i sat down in the studio with my son aubert to record sounds using five cymbals overturned on the concrete floor. instead of material for future sound sampling, what emerged was an unexpectedly deep-running four-handed free improvisation. please listen on headphones at moderate volume – you should feel like you’re sitting on the studio floor with us.
