Gamache is Francis Desjardins, graphic artist and photographer but also jubilant composer. Often resolute, always exploratory, Gamache's work is offhanded, audacious, and spontaneous. Abandoning precise rhetoric, this musicologist responds to his impulses, thusly mixing all types of desired sounds-from improvised noises to more techno-oriented rhythms-with accumulated musical knowledge. He then delivers the results of his fusionist methods in the form of improvisations from modified 'low range' synthesizers, analogue synthesizers, and arranged sound tapes. With regard to style, you may consider this artist as the grandson of Raymond Scott or the cousin of the individuals from Polish collective Mik Music. Favouring the peculiar, while approaching his audience with a debilitating sound, Gamache works with candour and enthusiasm in the heart of the Montreal scene.
