Dionne-Brégent


Dionne Bregent was a duo comprising Vincent Dionne on percussion and Michel-Georges Bregent on keyboards. They released a first album in 1976 entitled "...Et le Troisieme Jour". It is a more experimental effort, with side one being a percussionist's delight, and side two being more keyboard-heavy in a vein that is very similar to early Tangerine Dream. Its dark, otherworldly ambiance and vaguely tonal percussion also brings to mind a more even-tempered version of Harry Partch's instrumental works. Read more on Last.fm

The second album, simply called "Deux" and released a year later, is a much improved work featuring a host of back-up musicians. "Deux" contains compositions that are much more varied, melodic, and energetic. The fuller orchestration, which includes choral singing, a horn section, a string quartet and a harpist, brings the music to life in a more immediate fashion than the preceding album. Its electronic nature was very different from most of the folk-based music that was being produced at the time and, perhaps because of this, it remains an oft overlooked gem of Quebec's dynamic prog scene.

Afterwards, both musicians pursued solo careers, with Dionne recording works in an ECM jazz vein, and Bregent heading towards electro-acoustic territory. Bregent passed away from cancer in 1993.
