Martin Tétreault, Xavier Charles - MXCT (CD)
A collaboration between these two artists has generated a world of bouncing, textured material. Surrounding a focal piece of 20 minutes (Le cerveau) are six shorter works which retain the listener's attention and transport them into a unsuspected otherworld.
