Marianne Trudel
independent releases (TRUD 2004, 2004)

Description

Marianne Trudel offers a rich quilt of sonic colours seemlessly stitched together with a keen sense of compositional design and deft improvisational gestures. Drawing equally on the classical, jazz and free improv idioms, she cleverly balances these influences out on a razor's edge.
