Le fruit vert (CA)

Founded at the tail end of 2011, Le Fruit Vert brings together the complementary musical practices of Marie-Douce St-Jacques and Andrea-Jane Cornell (who co-runs local avant-garde label Los Discos Enfantasmes), with the psychedelic visual stylings of Sabrina Ratté. Operating on the margins of improvisation and inspired by Baroque music forms such as the ritournelle – which involves cyclical melodic lines and repetition across keys (or, in this modern manifestation, synths and vocal loops) – Le Fruit Vert conjure up dense, “hymnotic” incantations brimming with eerie vocal abstractions, propulsive pulses, organ swells, protruding tonal landscapes and doctored field recordings. With their debut EP Passiflore, released last fall, these moody enchantresses cast a powerful spell on ambient-attuned ears. Expect no less than spectral submission with their live A/V set at EM15.
