New Release Showcase
"I heard the GGRIL Orchestra during a short and pleasant stay at Rimouski (Canada) after finishing a long USA tour with ICP Orchestra. All these young musicians had big listening ears, knew how to work in a large ensemble, knew to wait and most important knew how to keep the music open and light. All this was done with a lot of fun, concentration and dedication." --Ab Baars
The GGRIL is a monster improv ensemble (gathering three electric guitars, stings and percussion) with a unique sound. Combines showcase games and improv strategy designed by band leader Eric Normand. The group is particularly interested in compositions that do not exhibit linear flow, but courses in which the player makes choices. The GGRIL has been active since 2007, and in addition to the compositions of its members worked through workshop with musicians of the caliber of Jean Derome, Ren Lussier, Evan Parker and Danielle P. Roger.
