My new podcast: "touche à oreille"

Since two month now I am working on a new project. In the beginning it was just a little stupid idea: making interviews to get in touch with my favorite musiciens. But as I started, I realized that this could be really interesting for a lot of people. And for me personally it is just a great way to learn from my idols.

I called it “touche à oreille” and the finished product is an interview podcast in which I ask musiciens about their career and life and how they got where they are. Sorry for those who don’t speak french, but as I live in france, it was just logic to me to start it in french language. This will not mean, that their won’t be some episodes in english from time to time.

In my first episode, I met Christophe CHASSOL ↗, a great musicien and really nice guy, whose music I listen to since quite a moment. I was pretty excited for my first interview and the sound quality is not that great yet, but I will get better from time to time.

You can listen to it on Spotify ↗ , on Apple podcasts ↗ and down here ↓.

(un)festival VRRRR

Last weekend I went to VRRRR (un) festival in Toulon, France.  The festival is about contemporary drawing mixed with music and performances

 I was invited to play Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Since I know that the organizer Benoit Bottex likes when things are a bit more experimental, I decided to try a completely new show. Since a while I was thinking about developing some pieces with a "prepared piano", so VRRRR  was the perfect platform for a first try.

Without really knowing what I would do in the end, I packed my car with some  utilities (e.g. Cordless drill driver, metal bars, etc.). I also went to a toy shop and bought a little RC car.

 The basic idea was to create rhythm with mechanical motion and transformed sound by objects  attached to the strings. I used some harmonies that I had in mind and put everything together. Check the video above to get an idea. I will definitely continue working on this subject. Subscribe to my newsletter to stay informed.
