NU_MTL Daybook 016 – Tambour

Some are landscape are artist, not using their hands but rather music, melancholy in a wordless scenario where all is emotion and melody, tunes brushed like a painting. You close your eyes. You drift. You plunge into yourself with a soundtrack that leads you inside of your feelings.

I’ve had many musical crushes in one life, but this one is a special one, the kind you save up to listen better, and that is also too deep to carelessly be played around. It needs quietness and attention, as much as it brings comfort. Tambour is the musical project of multi-instrumentist composer Simon P. Castonguay, shaping an acoustic expression using piano and strings.

Tambour‘s debut EP, Chapitre 1 is to be launched on July 2nd via Moderna Records through the first edition of the new concert series ”Sonoritées Modernes”, a musical encounter between classical and electronic music. Such a composers happening is a common place in Europe, especially in Berlin, looking forward to have to same in Montreal.  All you have to do is to sit and close your eyes —  you can cry if you want to.

Tambour – Sonorités Modernes:  July 2nd @ Cabaret Lion d’Or
Doors 7pm Concert 8pm

Tickets: 16 $ pre-sale // 20 $ at the door, available here.
