USA I

This PDF book a digest of two trips to the East of the United States I took in recent years. I was told that these photographs look like they’ve been taken by a bum with a disposable camera - probably the best thing that I ever heard about my images. Available for sale on BLURB.

P-A-R-K-I-N-G

  Produced by L'Association Sésame. This 8 minutes piece is the result of a serie of field recording workshops sessions, commissionned by Sésame and conducted by me in 2015. The idea was to use the Plaine Image's concrete and metal parking lot as it was, new and still empty, as a sound source. La Plaine… Continue reading P-A-R-K-I-N-G

Pocket Truths

The citations were : "Il se promène seul, se penche sur des riens. Si on lui demande d'expliquer ce qu'il photographie, il s'embrouille, et se retrouve incapable de parler..." "Une nuit le photographe… Continue reading Pocket Truths

The Run is the third shortfilm to which I've contributed, sound-wise, but it's the first time I record an original soundtrack. The movie was shot in San Francisco by Mathilde Veyrunes. I've played two live sountracks concerts for The Run in 2015, once in Les Instants Chavirés (Montreuil, France) and once in Lieu Commun (Toulouse,… Continue reading Mathilde Veyrunes’ The Run

Fotografie: Stijn Boelens, Het Entrepot. Thanks I was invited by fleuryfontaine to produce a live soundtrack to their installation Théâtre Des Opérations in Het Entrepot (Bruges, BE), the rendition of the Cut The Crap residency.

The Directional Coffin

  Originally designed for the Rest Era sound installation, this object came to be a piece in itself. Two versions exist : one fully functional, connects in USB to any computer, and behaves like a crippled 4 keys keyboard. The other one is the box only, and thus more of a sculpture. I thought Rest… Continue reading The Directional Coffin

Draisine

Draisine is my solo project. A more self-contained and mastered process than Przewalski’s Horses, it still relies much on free improvisation, revolving mainly around effects-processed electric guitar. Long sessions of studio recordings make the raw matter for post-productions editings, post-recording compositions; the musical composition here is much like painting, as it is about merging independent… Continue reading Draisine

Draisine : The Speaking Clock

"I was feelin’ kinda lonesome and blue I needed somebody to talk to So I called up the operator of time Just to hear a voice of some kind “When you hear the beep it will be three o’clock” She said that for over an hour And I hung up" Bob Dylan, Talkin' World War… Continue reading Draisine : The Speaking Clock
