My unusual instruments during my concerts are presented as sound sculptures and provoke curiosity on how they will sound.
I position myself in the center of this set-up, as an orchestra conductor, creating an integration between Man and Machine.
Who directs who ? who plays what ? who plays the instrumental notes ? who processes the computer ?

I tell stories, imaginary sound poems.
The audience is invited in a surreal world where they will hear new sounds, as they can see me operate my sound machines.

In 2002, with « Pépinier ou l’enclos des rêves » (Pépinier in the garden of dreams), I started a new exploration , using hardware (processors, pedals, samplers, …) for my sound processing. Since then , in order to enrich my work, I have used treatment via computer with Live Ableton and Max MSP. These softwares allow me to modify the raw sounds, repeat phrases, cut them apart, use them in reverse, stack them, stretch them.

I attach great importance to the sound spatialization during my concerts.
I install many monitoring speakers all around the instruments, in order to create a wide orchestra-type range of sounds.

« Quand j’étais chien » « When I was a dog » project, cine-concert.
In the middle of the stage, a man with two strange instruments, plays a resonant acoustic music. On a screen, a dog, man’s best companion, offers us a different vision of the world : a reduced ground-level perspective from a world in which human beings are the main protagonists.
The public re-discovers basic everyday concepts such as movement, vibration and pulse . The audience is invited by the images and the music, into a journey between reality and fiction, between our inner sphere and our surrounding space. A journey into new horizons where everyone can create his own poetry.

« QJC Boîte 23 » project will follow, inspired by German Expressionism.

« METAL BATTEMENTS N°1 »
Duo with Excelsior and Saw-blade Totem, the creation is composed of 4 movements, resonating to the work of artist Pierre Manoli.
The metallic sound texture is transformed by a BPM380, giving it pulse and accelerated rhythm.
The 25 minute piece is played live along with the computer processing, with no pre-recorded material.

« PHENOMENE VIBRATOIRE N°4 »
This string-quartet, with Spiriale, Harpependulair, Guitaressort and Celloharpa instruments, explores the field of melody, harmony and sound textures, all in the same key C#.
This 40 minute piece is a tribute to the Psychedelic music of the 70’s, a period rich in sound experimentation.
I enjoy using these musical traces and ambiances, in relation with those we hear nowadays.

« KETCH 8 »
I imagined being on a 8-foot Ketch, sailing on the horizon, discovering unknown islands, where strange creatures would be living. I imagined sailing towards new encouters, on a sailboat passing through the waves and the strong winds, sailing at high speed into a harsh and powerful Ocean, sailing through Cape Horn, coming across sea-monsters, birds, drawing alongside a fisherman’s village, accepting their invitation to a local party, singing, dancing and drinking with them. Then sailing again in the dark night under the stars, with the sound of bells, pistons, the wind hitting the shrouds of the mast, the carcking of the deck, the sliding and rubbing of the sails. One can hear the Ocean breathing, the night breathing, the breath that pushes you forward, the sounds of water, the sounds of the maneuvers, followed by the peaceful moments of the ebb and the flow, the lapping of the water under the boat hull.
