The Side Effects is the new collaborative project of Guillaume & the Coutu Dumonts. After releasing Breaking The Fourth Wall, on which many instrumentalists collaborated, it seems an obvious choice to transpose that spirit on the stage.
Ever an energetic actor in the electronic music scene, Montreal born artist Guillaume Coutu Dumont maintains numerous collaborative projects, performing regularly around the world. Driven by his passion for hybrid forms of musical expression, Guillaume continues on his quest for the ultimate ham bone funk recipe with his solo project: Guillaume & the Coutu Dumonts a special blend of funk, house, techno, gospel, swing and afro-beat. His first album Face à l’Est was released on Musique Risquée. So far, his solo outputs are available on MUTEK_rec, Musique Risquée, Hartchef Discos, Floppy Funk, Oslo, Raum Musik, Cocoon and on French labels Circus Company and Karat.
The performance mixes live sequences and electronic percussions with live guitar (Alexis Messier), saxophone (Sébastien Arcand Tourigny), keyboards (Nicolas Boucher) and vocals (Marc Barrite aka Dave Aju).
