Diane Labrosse

Diane Labrosse is a musician, composer and improviser who, over the past fifteen years, has been performing regularly on the musique actuelle and improvised music stages in Canada as well as in Europe where she participated in many major festivals. She is founding member of Justine, Les Poules and Wondeur Brass along with Joanne Hétu and Danielle P. Roger, and is presently pursuing several other projects including Parasites (Martin Tétrault), Île Bizarre (Ikue More and Martin Tétrault), Petit traite de Sagesse pratique (a variable geometry project), L'Oreille à Vincent (Christof Migone, Michel F. Côté, Martin Tétrault and the sound sculptor Jean-Pierre Gauthier). For the past several years, she has been especially active creating music for dance (Andrew de L. Harwood, Catherine Tardif, Harold Rhéaume, Séminaire chorégraphique de FLAK, Richard Siegal), for films and for radio. She and percussionist Michel F. Côté wrote the music for Robert Lepage's play La Géométrie des miracles.

She is also artistic co-director of the Productions SuperMusique (a musique actuelle concert production company). Her involvement in the new music scene as well as the needs of its artists has brought her to work more and more at internationally disseminating this music. She is also part of the Ambiances Magnétiques collective (an alliance of independent musicians/producers).
