…by(e)-and-by(e) summer

To let the summer languor lingers a little more, here are two radio sweeties fixed up for France Culture and that you may have missed: The John Greaves carte blanche on which you may listen to the early stages of our Manifesto project with Valérie Gabail, as well as to others of John’s wonders in good company and in binaural sound. The maths and sea epic-tale from Laurent Derobert and Estelle Delesalle that embarks three main navigators on the vanishing lines of the Eiffel Tower’s imaginary roots.

As we would not be serene without our lot of disquiet, storms will rumble again, along with their flock of phobias that Marc Sens and I were happy to catch with our lightning rod-guitars. From gurgliphobia to ascenphobia passing by stasiphobia, that record should especially thrill the lounge music phobics. The album PHOBIE will be available for download as from September 16, through the digital label Idol and on every music platform (Deezer, iTunes…) that could eventually skin us alive.

Live performances will start up again, firstly with the euphoric get-together from the euphonic dream-like camp ‘On a dit on fait un spectacle‘, settled on Madame Lune’s dreams at the Centquatre in Paris on September 15.

To slightly slide from the August hammock without actually stepping down from the august pleasure of its associated readings, the smashing association Transformabile offers an experience titled « Sans titre, non daté » on September 21. With Valentina Magaletti -fantastic drummer from The Oscillation or Tomaga, among others- we will be drawing up for three days a concert that will be cartelized by one of todays most captivating writers and philosophers, Tristan Garcia, , which I should really like to urge you to his fascinating bibliography. It will happen in Paris at Petit Bain and on Radio Campus Paris.

A final summer boost on September 22 at the Monte-en-l’Air, n Paris once again, where we will perform with the photographer Richard Dumas for our vinyl disc-portfolio TAN that is always available on Éditions de Juillet.

And to pull again the farniente rope, just like sound sprayers, we will rock to a musical nap the park of the Briantais castle in Saint-Malo with the eruDite-J Julien Tiné. That will happen on Sunday 25 September, a great gulp of levitational air before coming back on earth to see what it’s like.

Looking forward to meeting you soon down here. Have a lovely end of summer lovely Indians.
