Miriodor - Mekano
Miriodor have been making adventurous progressive rock music in Quebec for 20 years. They are among a handful of bands worldwide whose works convey all hallmarks of the ''R.I.O.'' school: adventurous and inspired compositions, rigorous musicianship, a distinctive and highly personalized sound, periodic references to folk music, and a steely determination to make music without compromise. Their music has been called ''...a dynamic, intricate and beautifully crafted blending of rock fusion, classical, folk and avant-garde musics.'' by Audion. Mekano, the band's 5th album, is perhaps their most impressive & entertaining work of all. Operating around the core of long-time members Pascal Globensky, Rmi Leclerc & Bernard Falaise, plus newcomers Nicolas Masino (bass & keyboards) and Marie-Chantal Leclair (saxes), it continues the trend that the band has adhered to since their beginning; a sound that is always developing in new and interesting ways, but that is still completely recognizable as ''Miriodor''.
