The Band

| Uncategorized | No Comments

” French horn, keyboards and drums can hold infinite possibilities, as this Montreal trio aptly demonstrates. Pietro Amato (Bell Orchestre, occasionally Arcade Fire), Mathieu Charbonneau and Julien Poissant also juggle duelling melodicas, percussion and an arsenal of effects to create captivating soundscapes and compositions that unexpectedly flowered into dance beats by the set’s conclusion. Can Montreal fit another spellbinding instrumental band inside the city walls? Absolutely.”
– Michael Barclay, Exclaim!
2004 Pop Montreal Festival review

” Thursday night was the first truly packed schedule of the Pop Montreal Festival. The Black Keys, Death From Above 1979, Billy Talent, Despistado, Q And Not U and Les Georges Leningrad were all competing for my attention. I opted instead for torngat, an instrumental three piece that makes more noise than a small army.

They were the one truly breathtaking discovery of Pop Montreal, appropriately confined to a new venue that sprouted overnight above a burnt out textile warehouse. The band’s reputation preceded them in the form of high praise from one of my friends, and I was stunned by their brand of post-rock-cum- chamber pop. Imagine the most joyous moments of the Rachel’s oeuvre fused with the accessibility of Belle & Sebastian’s most spellbinding melodies. In terms of the excitement in the room and the amazed response of the crowd, it was everything Godspeed You Black Emperor used to be, minus the politics and pretense.”
– Mike Baker, Splendidezine.com
2004 Pop Montreal Festival review

“Finger painting on liquid canvas while dancing to the tune of the greatest ants in your pants you ever had…(I wrote this at torngat’s last show as a quartet. If I would write it now, I would add)…in your head while meditating on the beauty of mischeif and complicity.”
-Carlo A. Verdichio 2004

RECAP OF 2005…
Lot’s of good things in 2005… We released our EP, La Rouge, which is our first official release as a trio. We are really happy with it and the reception it has gotten so far. Also, we played more shows in more places than we ever had, and in doing so, we got to meet lots of wonderful bands and lots of wonderful people which has been really great. And towards the end of the year we signed a publishing deal with Third Side Music, who have a great team. Also, we recently started working with Steven from Paquin
Entertainment who will be booking us shows in Canada. So, 2005 was definitely a good year for us. We hope it was as good for you!

BIG PLANS FOR 2006!

In the quest for the perfect cymbal, many Jazz drummer have noted that Tony Williams’ ride in the Miles (60’s) era was the best sounding cymbal ever recorded. It is now seen as THE sound for a Jazz cymbal. In my efforts to capture this sound, I (with great help from cymbalholic members such as: Patrick Wiseman and Mike Skiba…thanks guys!) took the initiative of asking Istanbul Agop to produce a ride that was similar to the revered Tony Williams sound.

Through extensive research and listening, we were able to determine the specific caracteristics that produce the Tony Williams. Obviously, it is firstly Williams’ masterful technique and feel that makes this cymbal sound gorgeous. Nonetheless, it is secondly the craftsmanship of the old K. Zildjian Istanbul factory that is at the base of his sound. This old K sound is what we have attempted to capture. With the supreme talent of the cymbal makers at the Agop factory and the input of my fellow drummer fiends, I beleive that the product that we have here comes very close to the recorded sound of Williams’ ride.

There were two batches of these rides made. Only two were made of the first batch. This first batch was the original and Istanbul made the ride according to the document I wrote. Here are pictures of the original ride:

The original prototype is much heavier than the second batch. This ride weights at around 2680g. But because of its bowed profile and thinner edges it crashes very nicely. Notice how the lathing gets thinner at about 3″ from the edge?

Its bowed profile is responsible for the controlled wash. This ride never gets out of control. It always has the prominent woody stick tone with the dark wash underneath. Unless you shoulder crash it, it never opens up to the point of being overly loud and washy. Once crashed though, this ride opens up to a nice trashy splash sound. But because of its bowed profile, the crash quickly diminishes.

Hear and compare the original ride with the original Tony Williams Nefertiti ride (courtesy of Patrick Wiseman)

ride crash

The second batch was made considerably different. Much of the sonic qualities of the original Tony Williams ride was retained. The only difference is that it is lathed like an Agop Jazz ride. The profile is still bowed with a slight edge upwards edge flange. The bell is not as big and thick. These were also made much thinner.

Notice how the edge flanges a bit upwards?

The hammering is also a bit less heavy than the original. These rides have a darker and more shimery sound. They are reminisent of the old K sound we all love. Check out the clips on the main page and hear for yourself!
