Champagne, Marquises, César and Garde-Chasse

Champagne, Marquises, César and Garde-Chasse

Would you never have had a reason to visit the Champagne region, here comes a valuable opportunity. Besides truffle or l’Idéal cake, you could savour the pièce montée layered by NO LAND with Brendan Perry and Bagad Cesson, on the 4th at the Nouveau Relax in Langres. As a starter for Land on, I will have the company of Marc Anthony, outstanding pioneer for off-piste hurdy-gurdy.

The recording of NO LAND is ongoing but you can already plunge into its pamphlet and go proclaim its slogans on public squares.

Music again. Two years ago, I was recording guitars for the Marquises 3rd album that would be called ‘A Night Full Of Collapses’ and now, patiently rife with beautiful notes set with beautiful musicians, it will be released on the 3rd on Ici D’ailleurs label.

Champagne again. Even if ‘The Girl without Hands‘ is more the type to run away the gilding of palace, she will have to bow to some society life as she is nominated for the César Best Animated Feature. Verdict on the 24th. While she will be emptying her cups, we will be recording the upcoming short-film of Sébastien with fantastical Élise Caron. Élise whom you can also hear again in digged up treasure from Superfolia Armaada.

Link again. A 20 minutes-new title by NO&RD, recorded by France Musique for the Euroradio Ars Acustica Art’s Birthday and dumbly named ‘Neurovision’ is podcastable here.

Soundtrack again. After the release of the Girl named above, the soundtrack for ‘Miss Impossible’ will be out this month by Plaza Mayor Music label, on digital or CD version.

There was the guitar for Richard the 3rd, the piano for Ekaterina Ivanovna, and now the harpsichord for Le Fils, interpreted by Bertrand Cuiller, will support the new play by David Gauchard l’Unijambiste. A powerful text by Marine Bachelot Nguyen, embodied by Emmanuelle Hiron whom delves into the incommensurable mystery of la manif pour tous march. That will happen on the Théâtre de l’Union in Limoges from the 14th to the 17th, before going on tour.

Theatre again. This month will be dedicated to the Oratorio – Nova from Peter Handke, created in a duo with Claire ingrid Cottanceau for the MC93. A dream team indeed as we will be accompanied on stage with 20 wonderful septuagenarian and we will have the privilege to be supported by choreographer Thierry Thieû Niang. Piloting the whole, the brightest of technique made of art with Fabrice Le Fur on lights and again and again Nicolas Dick on sound.

That will be on March 2 and 3 at the Théâtre du Garde-Chasse in Lilas, then on tour. Would you wish to radiate with this splendid text, don’t wait too long before getting your tickets.

This monthly simple newsletter is celebrating its 2nd anniversary and I take this opportunity to thank you all very much for your caring and heartwarming messages. Till next month, for another saga.
