The "Musique Actuelle" of AMBIANCES MAGNETIQUES (CAN)

L to R: Jean Derome, Diane Labrosse, Pierre Tanguay, Joane Hetu

A collective and a label, Montreal's AMBIANCES MAGNETIQUES, has been introducing us, for the last 25 years, to the most exciting adventures of the francophone canadian "avant" scene.

Initially founded just as a cooperative between the avant-gard artists & improvisors JEAN DEROME, RENE LUSSIER, JOANE HETU & friends.

First releases, RENE LUSSIER's debut work "Fin Du Travaill" (1983) and albums from ANDRE DUCHESNE, WONDEUR BRASS, LES POULES, LES GRANULES... attract a small interest, mostly among fans of RecRec sound, avant-prog and the likes.

In 1991 though, when JOANE HETU establishes the DAME distribution company, AMBIANCES MAGNETIQUES, taking the shape of a more regular label, extends its activities, adds its catalog many new artists... and gradually starts earning wider critical respect and international acknowledgement...

Nowadays AMBIANCES MAGNETIQUES music is available through its official website:
