A LONG LONG TIME AGO
Although I’m Director and photographer, I consider my ears as precious as my eyes.
Back to my old days, radios, audio cassettes, CDs, TV and VHS were the most usual musical supports, in addition to vinyles. The Solitaire, Chess and Minesweeper were the rare games on the Windows 95/98 computers in the early days of Internet. Mobile phones only had 3 “ringtones”, “smartphones” didn’t exist and by extension, the applications and Shazam neither. However, we enjoyed spending most of our time doing fun things and outdoor activities, instead of being glued to the screens.
This fact undoubtedly led my curiosity to listen to something else than classical music. I went once a week to the library of my hometown. To me it was THE cavern of Ali-Baba ! There, we’ve been allowed to borrow 5 CDs, 5 audio cassettes, 5 books and 2 VHS per week! Obviously I brought home anything I could (and by alphabetical order to get sure that I win’t miss anything!). Whether I liked the music or not, I told myself that “if this song is out, there must be a reason. Understanding why a music is worth to be listened is essential to me because people put their heart in it. Anyway, I knew nothing so it was a huge playground.
Today, I still don’t have a preferred style of music. I’m only smitten with a song when it gives me emotion. That is to say when it makes me want to dance, to dream, to cry, to give my heart, to be alone or to be be reunited, to party, to build an empire or to conquer the world!
This is why music is to me, complementary to photography and films : when I develop a visual idea or write a script, listening to music has the power to give me a tempo, a tone, a « thinking color »… and music just emphasizes any mood. Huge thanks to all the amazing artists who inspired me for all those years.
