“Homos Pugnax”, the latest CD by the group Auguste, was created and developed during the ensemble’s most recent European tour when we were joined by drummer Michel Lambert. In the interest of creating a coherent whole, each musician was asked to contribute original compositions to the CD. The album was thus born out of companionship, exploration, harmony and rhythm. However, its creation was also profoundly marked by news of various international conflicts occurring at the time, which weighed considerably on our minds. Fortunately, the music was there to soothe us and help us forget the pugnacity of Man. Forms and colours from one concert filtered into the next, generating a continuous flow of musical inspiration.
