Le fruit vert
Le fruit vert is a bicephalous project led by Andrea-Jane Cornell and Marie-Douce St-Jacques. Portrayed as “priestesses of melancolie” the duo engenders a singular style of music that is perched on the threshold of torpid song, psychedelic refrain and spectral hypnosis. In November 2013, after two years of existence, Le fruit vert released Passiflore, an EP on Montreal imprint Los discos enfantasmes (Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, Ben Vida, Greg Davis, Ramzi). Decoder magazine described the cassette as one of the most unusual releases, and easily one of the more interesting debuts. Le fruit vert has been programmed alongside Preterite, Richard Youngs, Circuit des Yeux, Holly Herndon, Eric Chenaux, and Bill Nace, in locales as varied as the Casa del Popolo, Montreal’s Museum of Contemporary Art, and a wild-life preserve in the Mauricie, Quebec. In 2015, choreographer Karine Denault (L’Aune) incorporated several of their compositions in her solo show entitled L’échappée. The discerning ear detects the influences of pioneers Delia Derbyshire and Éliane Radigue in their music.
