Here are the audio pieces I chose for this Radia programme..
Biodiversité – Biodiversity, the sound you can hear now in the background, I made to answer the call of Mixage Fou, to mix different given sounds into a 80 second piece.
The Meaning of Life, a piece I made for the second digital album by Fair Play, a compilation of pieces by cis and trans female artists – The Meaning of Life is a collage with Nostalghia, The Mirror, Solaris and Stalker by Tarkovsky, the voice of Orson Welles on BBC4, Alphaville by Godard, a few words by Vaughan Supple about Tarkovsky’s work – and says on how mankind cope with the absurd of existence, wants to understand, knows the question is vain, but still wants to reproduce.
La Tempête des géants – Tempest of the Giants, a piece I created for my girlfriend during the Yellow Vest movement and is about the aburdity of police violence.
Followed by Restez chez vous which is a short piece by Leslie Doumerc at Radio Panik, with Gaëlle Morand and me as cops telling the population to stay at home during de pandemic.
Une Certaine dose de tendresse – A Certain Dose of Tenderness – a piece I made during the evacuation of the zad of Notre-Dame-des-Landes in April 2018. The title is from the famous speech by Subcomandate Marcos which says « A certain dose of tenderness is necessary in order to walk when there is so much against you / in order to awaken when you’re so exhausted. A certain dose of tenderness is necessary in order to see, in this darkness, a small ray of light / in order to make order from shame and obligations. […] But sometimes a certain dose of tenderness is not enough and it’s necessary to add… a certain dose of bullets. »
And Stalker, the last piece, by Clémence Fermé – with La Jetée by Chris Marker, Stalker by Tarkovsky, Alphaville by Godard, Roma by Fellini, Metropolis by Fritz Lang – this piece was carried out for L’Acentrale, radio held by a large group of people to speak out for strikers, workers and social riots.
