  • 1. The Ascension of the Camels

Far, far away, in a binary star system, a dark object is coming to life… Three seasoned improvisers from Montréal invent a rich & spacy soundtrack to a surrealist SF story featuring interplanetary voyages, crystal machines, pink laser beams… as well as a couple of camels.

Will Eizlini: text, narration
Alexandre St-Onge: electronics
James Schidlowsky: handmade electronics
Xarah Dion: electronics, voice

Played live at La Sotterenea (Montreal) on 2019.08.20, recorded from the soundboard.

Cover art: Will Eizlini.

Thank you Alex Pelchat / Mardi Spaghetti.

Will wrote the text and pre-recorded the narration. Alexandre had put the bits of narration on a timeline at semi-regular intervals and then Alexandre, James and Xarah improvised a soundtrack based on what the bits suggested. The improvisers hadn’t heard the narration beforehand... they were hearing it for the first time along with the audience.
