DOLMAN / ROSSY / JOBIN

DOLMAN / ROSSY / JOBIN

 

 

Dolman / Rossy / Jobin is a Montreal-based experimental trio led by drummer, composer and lyricist Aaron Dolman, alongside vocalists Sarah Rossy and Eugénie Jobin. The group's unique, minimalistic instrumentation harnesses the expressive powers of percussion and the human voice as primordial conveyors of rhythm, melody, poetry and song. 

Their eagerness to explore unfamiliar sounds and approaches is informed by a number of musical traditions, notably, Jazz, free improvisation, chamber music, Minimalism, the avant-garde and North American folk music. The result is a strikingly distinctive  sound that feels both intimately familiar and refreshingly new. 

The group was recently awarded the François-Marcaurelle Award at the 23rd edition of the OFF Festival de Jazz de Montréal, and were also featured in an interview with Le Devoir (French), which can be found HERE.

Are You Here to Help? // March 18 2022

The trio’s first album, Are You Here to Help?, is a journey into the uniquely expressive qualities of drums and the human voice—brought into sharp focus by the group’s strikingly minimalistic instrumentation. All throughout, Aaron’s compositions blur the line between notated and improvised performance, and probe the expressive power of taking, giving and leaving space in music.
