Voici un premier disque passionnant de la jeune compositrice québécoise Nicole Lizée. Membre du groupe The Besnard Lakes, Lizée s’est fait connaître grâce à ses œuvres pour grand ensemble et platiniste solo, qui font appel aux techniques de rayures des DJ, entièrement notées et intégrées dans le cadre de la musique de concert. Elle a recours à divers langages musicaux, fusionnant les sonorités du jazz et de la musique populaire dans une structure classique contemporaine. L'oeuvre éponyme du CD This Will Not Be Televised s'est classée parmi les dix meilleures compositions à la Tribune internationale de compositeurs en 2008.

“This CD does such a genuine job in celebrating jazz music, improvisation, pop music, contemporary music and everything in between. Lizée’s music clearly reflects the many identities of Canadians, and the next generation of its composers. Her fearless approach is engaging and I highly recommend raising children on this music…”
- Richard Marsella, Wholenote Magazine

“An exploration into the world of turntablism and its integration into a concert music setting. Pitch based manipulation are used to create melodies that are accompanied and embelished by a live ensemble of musicians. In the first track, for example, you're going to hear selections from "C.R.E.A.M." and "Can It Be That It Was All So Simple" by Wu-Tang Clan suddenly materialize and disappear before you know it. To make the experience even more intense, vocal and guitar samples from Van Halen are cut into the mix. Did I mention this all occurs within the first 10 minutes of the first track?”
- CJAM Music Review, “Most Highly Recommended”

“Quebec composer Nicole Lizée is a pioneer in reconciling turntablism and classical music, and beyond that shotgun marriage, she betrays a rich imagination and appreciation of the lowbrow and pop.”
- Rupert Bottenberg, Montreal Mirror
