Armed with several years of studies and research into electro-acoustic music, Guillaume Coutu-Dumont and Julien Roy united their efforts to form EGG in the summer of 2002 with a mandate of exploring new and fruitful horizons in electronic music. Their first disc Don't Postpone Joy was released in the fall of 2003 on the MUTEK_REC label and was considered a breath of fresh air. After a year of fine-tuning their sounds and polishing their performance during various shows outside Quebec-they were notables at the MUTEK festival in Mexico and in Chile-EGG is ready for its big Montreal comeback. Equal parts glitch, samples and playfulness, EGG ably sidesteps the highbrow tendencies of experimental electronics using their brand of cartoon-tech sensibilities.
