FRANÇOIS BOURASSA - L’Impact du Silence - PIANO SOLO
 
François Bourassa, who now has ten original music albums, has become an ambassador for Canada's thriving jazz community internationally. A paragon of consistency and evolution, he continues to open up new horizons for himself, his colleagues and his growing community of listeners. Bourassa's talent was first recognized by the Montreal International Jazz Festival in 1985. Since the mid-1990s, he has performed and recorded with his quartet. Mr. Bourassa is a staple of the Montreal artistic landscape and has toured extensively in North America, Europe and Asia. In addition to his work with his quartet, Mr. Bourassa's artistic projects include the following projects: Award-winning Autour de Bill Evans and En Trois Couleurs, as well as musical works composed for vibraphone, marimba and symphony orchestra for Marie -Josée Simard. He has also been invited by Rémi Bolduc, Yannick Rieu, Tim Brady, the Jazzlab Orchestra and the Orchester National de Jazz de Montréal.
 
The Impact of Silence
Too often in music the importance of silence is underestimated. Judiciously used, it has real strength; emotional and poetic. The impact of silence or the powerful effect it has on the listener. A collection of compositions for piano with different atmospheres. A musical adventure combining improvisation, lyricism and abstraction, of which integrity and emotion are the common thread.
 
“His solo piano music is on the borderline between composition and improvisation; some things happen,
yet, but there is always room for experimentation. Does Maurice Ravel dream of Paul Bley - or is it
the other way around? " Ethan Iverson
 
In 35 years of career, after having recorded a multitude of group albums, record his first piano album
solo seemed obvious to him. With this in mind, the collaboration with renowned sound engineer Gérard De Haro and his studio La Buissonne in France where internationally renowned musicians have recorded, has established itself as
being the best choice.
 
A solo album is a stripping bare. The opportunity for him to go into introspection without losing the contrasting dynamics
to create varied and unpredictable music combining the spontaneity of improvisation with rigorous organization.
 
L’Impact du Silence will be released worldwide in April 2021 on Effendi Records.
