Associations libres

Gilles Gobeil

Associations libres has been performed in Berlin, Birmingham, Dijon, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Montpellier, Montréal, Morelia and San Francisco…

This piece was born of the desire after fifteen years, to collaborate with the guitarist René Lussier. Using his talent for improvisation, I have employed the wide variety of timbres and sound matter from his interpretation. The tape consists of a succession of very dense and expressive scenes onto which the guitar’s living and playful gestures are placed.

Gilles Gobeil [xi-90]


Associations libres [Free Associations], a commission by René Lussier with support from the Canada Council [for the Arts] (CCA), was realized at the studio Ondes in Montréal in July, 1990.
