A human beatbox from France in Athens.
A voice 'n' noise gig.
"My vocal work consists of a sonorous multitude of tunes, vocal rhythms, songs, whistlings...
All these things which come through me during long walking journeys or during physical and manual work.
I try, with as little effects as possible (my body, my voice, little bells and a harmonica), to express all of this in a lively and musical way.A kind of "hymn to life"; "Why do we have arms, elbows, knees, vocal chords...?""
"I have always worked around travelling in a non-motorised way (mainly walking) across the natural environment Walking is the cement of all my work; graphic, oral (vocal percussion) and narrative (comics). We live in an age where everything is made to distance man from nature. To walk in an intense and prolonged manner from one point to another allows one, like all healthy and intelligent manual work, to become aware of life and to find our human roots. To be in touch with the energy which beats within. What purpose do our knees serve? Our ears? Our elbows?... We have been given a body and a space to use it in. In us all, a creative fibre. Walking is an act of life towards the development of this fibre. This works is involving life, is involving walk.We are alive!
With Christine Quoiraud, dancer/walker/choregrapher, I took part in a three-week residential workshop on the theme of walking and dancing in the Moroccan desert, near Meski. This time devoted to the body made a huge emotional impact on my life; I've realised, among other things, that the vocal percussion that I have practised for 13 years now, was the rhythm of my life and my steps
A kind of hymn to life".
