Louis Dufort - Pointe-aux-Trembles

Duration: 14' 26

An impression of the refineries of east-end Montréal

Night beneath the glittering refineries,
time stands still, I am but a lost child
on the gravel of Pointe-aux-Trembles
Machine Mother take me.

Pointe-aux-Trembles was realized in 1996 in the studio of the Faculty of Music of the Université de Montréal. The present version was premiered in 1997 at the concert of the 5th Prix international Noroit-Léonce Petitot (Arras, France). Thanks to Marcelle Deschênes who has always understood my work so well. Thanks to Alexandre Burton for his capable fingers during the mixing sessions, and especially for getting me out of technical nightmares. Pointe-aux-Trembles was a finalist for the Prix international Noroit-Léonce Petitot in 1997 and was first recorded on the Prix international Noroit-Léonce Petitot 1997 disc (NOR 5).
