The Prison in Twelve Landscapes is an award-winning documentary film by Brett Story.  In 2015, I had the pleasure of recording some neanderthalic bass lines for composer Olivier Alary’s evocative score.  It premiers May 8, 2017 on PBS! Here’s the trailer:

And here’s an H4 bootleg of a recent live set for those who couldn’t be there:

REMPIS!!!

June 8th:  This year the Suoni Per Il Popolo festival will be presenting the one and only Dave Rempis in concert.  He’ll be performing a set of solo saxophone and then joined by drummer Michel Lambert and myself for a trio set.  Hope you can join us for this one, mes ami(e).  It promises to be a hot fucking night o’ fire music.

Before Nigel Taylor  left Montreal to return to his native Saskatchewan, we had a chance to play a great improvised session with Chicago-based drummer Ryan Packard and bass sax juggernaut Jason Sharp at the North Star.  This meeting was captured by the venerable microphones of Mathieu Belanger:

STRUNG OUT

The Jasper Stadhouders/Aaron Lumley acoustic duo album, Strung Out, is now available on bandcamp and as a limited edition red and gold sparkle cassette tape.  Strung Out was recorded by Niels Brouwer at his home studio in Amsterdam Noord.  Wilbert de Joode produced the album and it was later mixed and mastered in Montreal by Howard Bilerman and Harris Newman respectively.  Liam Donald Parker, who drew the green man cover for Wildernessalso provided the artwork for Strung Out.  The close up of Jasper’s acoustic guitar on the tape’s jacket–scratched all to hell and bloody with only five strings–speaks directly to the energy, spirit, and sound of the music.

Film maker Yuan Liu was also present at the session and she filmed these videos:
