Harmonium was one of the most influential rock bands from Quebec. Lead vocalist and guitarist Serge Fiori met MichelNormandeau (vocalsand guitar) in a theatre music meeting. Later on in 1973 they met bassist Louis Valois and becameHarmonium. In November of 1973 thegroup performed their first air play on CHOM-FM. They played three tracks: “Pour uninstant”, “Un musicien parmi tant d’autres”, and “Unrefrain parmi tant d’autres”. The first two songs were demos at the timeand were later recorded professionally to be put on their first album,Harmonium. The last song was a sequel to “Un musicienparmi tant d’autres”, but never made the album cut, staying as a b-side. Apart fromthe album, one single was recorded atthe time: “Pour un instant”, featuring two tracks (one on each side), the title song and “100,000Raisons”, only released onthe CD version of the album almost 20 years later. After many little shows and a small tour played all over Quebec, they were up for the second album. The album, sometimesknown as LesCinq Saisons, was actually named Si on avait besoin d’une cinquième saison. There were five songs on thealbum, one representing eachseason and the last song being the “new” season. For this album the band had three newmembers: Pierre Daigneault, playing the flutes, sax,and clarinets, Serge Locat, handling the piano and synths, and JudyRichards, who sings the melody of the fifth season in “Histoires sansParoles”. The third album, L’Heptade, is about the seven states of consciousness of a person (during a day, or during a life). The firstand the last songare named “Comme un fou” and “Comme un sage”, indicating a progression towards wisdom. A double-LPlive album was recorded during theband’s final tour, and later released as En tournée in 1980. « hide
