Les Blancs Brilliants!
Les Blancs Brilliants share a skill and passion for music in the moment. This trio is brand spanking new, but is founded on some old relationships, so is the music: first breath out of the womb, but worn like a glove. The trio members’ backgrounds in rock, jazz, avante garde and classical traditions, have lead them to form close, daring and fruitful collaborations with such leaders as Jerry Granelli, Gord Downie, and Fides Krucker. Les Blancs Brilliants have been featured soloists in the orchestras of Fred Frith, Sam Rivers, and Georg Tintner; and regularly conduct and compose for the Upstream and Woodchoppers orchestras. The Oore brothers and Mr. Clark have collectively appeared on over forty-five cds, performed on national and international radio, television and web broadcasts, made the subject of a film, and are critically acclaimed for their artistic efforts. They have collaborated with dancers Andrea Nann, Yvonne Ng and Sara Shelton Mann/Contraband, jammed with the Sun Ra Arkestra and published research with neural-networks expert Geoffrey Hinton and graphics guru Demetri Terzopoulos. Now the Oore’s and Clark come together, in a mass of white fire.
