Two saxophones, two voices; two gargoyles, two satyrs; two forces of nature that agitate, whistle, squeek, scrape, blow, and bite, transforming music into a secular incantation and a banquet of sound. This magnificent duo will perform a potent set of music for their attentive audience, followed by / peppered with general discussion on improvisation along with sharing of some technical details, depending on the audience interest, curiosity and desire.

Nous perçons les oreiles is a rather peculiar duo, down to its very instrumentation. There is a certain symmetry at its core: two alto saxophones improvising together, but the sax players also sing, one relaying the other to a point where, in some places, there is no way of knowing who plays what. A hall of mirrors, symbiotic work. A duality blending into one, just like two ears sending different and complementary signals to the same brain.
