Comments : I have seen Sébastien Roux four times (more if I count Oldine and Rabbits Sorrow) and he always played the guitar, so it was a bit of a surprise to see an elecro-acoustic presentation. Sébastien performed at the soundboard in the back of the room, behind the audience. We were seated in an darkened room, facing speakers with candles on top. Four pieces were played tonight: three very short ones based on field recordings and one long one (about 40 minutes) based on Beethoven. I really enjoyed the first three but found the last one a bit too long, despite some great moments. I skipped the last show he played in Montreal due to pricey tickets. I am glad I went tonight, but I do not regret not going last time. Hmm.
