Bob & Bill present the album Crime Report, first opus of this duo, released under the Orange Music label. On this album Bob & Bill put to use the sum of their experience by combining electroacoustic experimentation, instrumental sonority and electronic music to deliver a rich and organic end product. All sound samples that are found on Crime Report were created from authentic instruments or heterogeneous objects, found here and there in everyday living. Amongst invited artists, there are comedian Jacques Lavallée narrator and countertenor Daniel Taylor.

This album, with an intimate feel of cinematic surroundings, will plunge the listener into the most uncommon sound universe. Crime Report’s music is presented as the soundtrack of a movie still inexistent inspired by texts from Jean-François Boily and Janicke Morissette. The music inspires a gloomy, strange and schemer scenario; a certain sound illustration of strength and human capacities to externalize inner ache. The listener will be impelled into this story and will imagine the elements expressed by the powerful music concocted by Bob & Bill.

Sometimes soaring and introspective, other times swinging and festive, Crime Report’s music is tinged with emotion and reveals its depth each time we listen to it.
