      Délire Actuel unveils its 30 favorite albums for 2010 on

      Sherbrooke, December 28, 2010 ‹ The demanding music radio show Délire Actuel
      (CFLX-FM, Sherbrooke, Quebec) unveiled today its top 30 experimental music
      albums you shouldn¹t have missed in 2010. This list culls 30 titles, the
      2010 crème de la crème in demanding music, i.e. the avant-gardist or
      experimental fringe in every music genre (contemporary, avant-garde jazz,
      free improvisation, avant-rock, electronica, etc.).

      ³What I call demanding music covers the notions of experimental music,
      avant-garde music, innovative music, musique actuelle, etc.,² explained
      François Couture, producer of the show. ³2010 has been an exciting year,
      although new specific trend has emerged.²

      ³Obviously, I haven¹t heard everything released in 2010! So, I am not
      pretending that these are THE best records of the year, but they are MY best
      30 records of the year. And, since they were selected from somewhere around
      700 submissions, I hope that the artists and record labels can find a little
      pride in appearing on this Top 30.²

      This year, an honorary mention has been added to the Top 30. ³Mark
      Applebaum¹s The Metaphysics of Notation is a DVD I couldn¹t possibly
      broadcast on radio airwaves in a convincing manner; it is a visually
      gorgeous graphic score!²

      Two special editions of Délire Actuel will be broadcasted tonight (December
      28) and next Tuesday (January 4), from 8 pm to 10 pm (EST), on CFLX. A track
      from each selected CD will be featured. The Top 30 was posted this morning
      on the blog Monsieur Délire (blog.monsieurdelire.com; copy attached). You
      can tune in to CFLX at 95.5 FM in the Sherbrooke area, or anywhere over the
      web at www.cflx.qc.ca. The show will also be available as a podcast from
      that website for a week.
