CMC Presents: Avec Le Soleil Sortant De Sa Bouche, The Mike Smith Company
at the Drake Hotel

Experimental jazz quartet The Mike Smith Company, and afro-kraut trance rock collective Avec Le Soleil Sortant De Sa Bouche all perform at the Drake Hotel.

The Mike Smith Company is the ongoing outlet for the compositions of Mike Smith, a Toronto born multi-instrumentalist and composer whose work explores the interstices between folk music, progressive rock, jazz, and minimalism. Smith’s current company finds synthesist Jonathan Adjemian, vocalist Robin Dann, trumpeter Rebecca Hennessy and violinist Mika Posen following the loose mandate of imagining song forms somewhere between classic salsa, wobbly electronic psychedelia and the Penguin Café.

Over the past few years, Montreal kraut-funk quartet Avec le soleil sortant de sa bouche has established itself as something of a local supergroup – its members have been active in this city's experimental rock communities for well over a decade, including participation in Panopticon Eyelids, Pas Chic Chic, Red Mass, Set Fire to Flames, and, from the Constellation roster, Fly Pan Am – and gained a local reputation for irresistible and levitational live sets combining a contemporary/avant-garde sensibility with infectiously angular, rubbery grooves.
