Mille Bayous is the latest offering from the collaborative team of Horvey, Goldschneider and Morton. Their work references free jazz traditions and mistakes, contemporary/experimental composition, and other modes of improvised and found music to create an actuelle-folk-electroacoustic sound. It is cute, patient, noisy, brash, cheeky, epic, and proficient. Mille Bayous is their first release, although some of their work has also appeared on two solo albums by Amy Horvey, as well as in numerous live performances in Montréal, Stratford, across Saskatchewan, and other locations in Canada.
