PROGRAM NOTES

"Turlutte acadienne montréalaise" is an original melody hailing from the traditional Acadian musical practice of the mouthreel. The composer recorgnises her Acadian roots, but also the cultural influences of her current hometown, Montréal, in the title. The French-Canadian mouthreel is the art of imitating an instrumental reel or a jig with one's voice, using a specific set of syllables - not unlike jazz scat singers. Though mouthreels can be found in many other cultures around the globe, a little sound is featured in the Acadian and Québecois mouthreel, which is the "ts" sound, like a mini drum-kit high-hat hit.

PERFORMANCE NOTES

Mouthreel syllables particularities:

  • "tam", "tim", "lam", and "dam": move immediately to the "M" consonant and hold it for the duration of the note.

  • "dl": move immediately to the "L" consonant and hold it for the duration of the note.

  • "ts": this sound is unvoiced and is purely percussive.
