A night wit’ Jean Faucheur, Lee Morgan & Michel Petrucciani

25 02 2009

Jean Faucheur, Visages (cut photos, 200?)

I met Jean Faucheur in 2002 or 2003 i think, when “Une Nuit” project was startin to be big all over Paris. “Une nuit” is a(nother) project by him, many artists particpated.

What is it?
“Une nuit” (a night, ndlr) is a project by Jean Faucheur and many many plasticians, painters…
The purpose of this project was to cover the maximum of advertising boards in one night.
The artists created in Jean Faucheur’s workshop posters of 4 metres by 3.
Then were going to cover advertisements inside Paris and sometimes around close suburbs.
“A Night project” is one of the last big group action in Paris since 2000.

When the city was waking up, artists were looking at their work with people around, going to work, with a fresh mind as no advertisements can attack your imagination…Pretty nice to keep your brain on the pillow with sweet and hardcore paintings everywhere…
Instead of Coca-Cola’s everywhere

[Excuse my english]



“A Night” project worked so good that more and more artists wanted to participate…so more artists needs more Adv.boards and..more time
By day, vandalising those boards is an excellent way to work out…

[Pigs are never that far]

Jean Faucheur is (also) a great plastician, photograph & sculptor (even if he said he never liked it). I really suggest you to check his website, which is full of pictures, links and infos about him & his works.

Here are some extracts of what can be done with patience & of course…talent






What i love about “A Night” is, of course the diversity of artists but more:
i love the aspect of “We aren’t vandals, we are kind and we make beautiful things…” ahaha and most of institutions thought it was true.
But, i can tell it was rough.
Main purpose was to take control over economy, over publicy
It’s of course make things better and more beautiful cause a toaster is still a toaster even if P.Stark designed it…

If you want to bring the idea in your own country, here’s the lesson by Mr L’Atlas & Mr Tanc (live from Mr. Faucheur Workshop) 2 of our greatest parisian vandals.

….i love nightlife…i’m addict to it since more than 12 years now…i love night, ride Paris by night, ride Krung Thep by night, look at the window and remember how much Paris was covered of Graffiti (since Amélie been shot in north of Paris and they buffed everything…i hate Amélie since that…History killers), old streets by a night summer, drunk and with smiles everywhere…
And say: “Let’s go fuckin Deauville now!!!”
And wake up at Deauv’ ill…with friends & hopefully mo’Champagne

I want to offer my vision of “A Night”…and how i see it

Lee Morgan (10 July 1938-19 February 1972)

Lee is my forever nightfriend
I love Miles of course, but i dont know…i’m havin’ a fascination for seconder…
He’s such a great trompetist and all big names played with him…and he was born in Philly

It’s mostly Hard Bop…and i love hard bop
For me it’s the perfect music for a chase by night with pigs

Lee Morgan # Slightly Hep (1956)

Lee Morgan: Trumpet, Kenny Rodgers: Alto Sax, Hank Mobley: Tenor sax, Horace Silver: Piano, Paul Chambers: Bass & Charlie Persip: Drums

Lee Morgan # Boy, What a Night (1963)

Lee Morgan: Trumpet, Joe Henderson: Tenor sax, Barry Harris: Piano, Billy Higgins: Drums & Bob Cranshaw: Bass

I don’t have so many regrets in my life…a few…One of the biggest is the night i fall asleep at a Michel Petrucciani’s solo performance…Don’t slap me cause i was 8 years old.
I think i was too young to handle a 2hours long performance of one of the best piano player ever.
If you don’t know Michel Petrucciani, it’s no big deal, blogs are here for that…and, no one is perfect.

[Me, first]


I’m always thinking about that night…
Why did i sleep? Why Why Why?

Dig more about Michel please, if you like the song beside of course and if you’re curious about music and composer, dig more. He’s such a genius and an exemple for Life.

Check this documentary from Mezzo Channel

7h56am. Waiting for the train you just burned in the yards couple of hours before…aaaaand

This is it! This..is…it This..is…it!
[Real knows….]

Zevs # Fake Gzzglz online(2009)

A friend of a friend is making a big report for Uni on Graffiti…and that “Street Art” Shits.
I tried to answered her the most true as i can, my vision of graffiti and why i think people think like tey think….
About street art, what can i say: Mr A. (André) sucks?
Right, treat me a jealous, or anything else
But everybody knows…he is
If you like to pay 175euros for a Andre Tees at the Palais de Tokyo shop, it’s your choice
If you like to think that he’s an orginal artist with such a great imagination, so take your notes back and have a look on Jacques Rouxel creations in….1968, a famous french cartoon called Les Shadoks.

If you didnt know, now you know
Also that Agnes B. paid all police stuffs for André….that’s a real bad bwoy…

…André, if you read this: You suckaz…

Well, after that i can say that Street Art don’t exist.
Art does

Why institutions call it Sreet Art? Why not just Art?
Because, and everybody will be agree wit’dat, you have stuffs in gallery who sucks a lot.
But it’s Art, you know Real Real Art for nice suits and nice silicone lips gal’…looking at someone pooing on a Lady Di picture…
(I love Diana, but its so hardcore to shit on her picture…they say)

They’re just afraid of it
Streets, smells, talents

Remember Kase2, NYC, back in the late 70’s Mid 80’s, he developped the Wild Style, on subways, illegaly, created master pieces in 25 minutes with shit spray cans, done so quick…
with only one arm.
Ghetto Child…Art always been political
And when it stopped, it died

ZEVS, which is considered by elites as a street artist is for me, more than that…

He’s a vandal

Which is more interesting…
Do you think Banksy started graffiti, started Rats collections, vandalized the Southbank London with fire extinguisher just for fun? Or to become an artist? You think he’s still a street artist? or an Artist? Cause of the price of his canvas? So he can keep on vandalize and no one will bring him on court?
So…if it’s the case, let’s vandalize !!! We’ll become artists

The non-sense of that situation is pretty dadaist, i really like it

So You should check ZEVS’s site if you never heard about him (no one is perfect) and think twice before call Art: Street Art or African Art…It’s just Arts

We’re all humans so let’s dance now

That’s Hot !!! Light Printer

That’s hot….and brilliant
As the day Actual Facts been released….

Lord Finesse feat. Grand Puba, Large Professor & Sadat X # Actual Facts (1995)

With the “lightprinter” you are able to paint logos, words and patterns, just like they are printed in the air, this is the next step in “lightwriting”.

He created it using the Arduino Board . There are 40 LEDs which can be controlled with a software he made in Processing
Speed and brightness of the LEDs can be controlled.

They will create a new Video pretty soon.
So stay tuned…

Holy Ghosts, Paris Subway Tunnels 200?

I woke up again today, as a normal day: Coffee & Cigarette.
Weather is pretty wet & cold
First thoughts of the morning are actually killin my days but i’m busy almost 98% of the time so i can handle it…a bit

A quick shower in “another” bathroom, tryin’ to be away for 10 minutes. Me & my friend the shower gel.
Subway, looking in da tunnels, faster as my mind is running and peoples rushing in corridors.

My mind spray

Sometimes you just know what to do, what to think and how express.
It don’t need to be expressed sometimes.
Keep it, use it and act.

If you have any chance to act

Music is here for this…Calm myself when i can’t control any situations
So use it
Even if real feelings are deep and you just try to hide it from yourself or from others

This, made my morning cooler…at least

Booker T & The Mg’s # Melting Pot

This, will make my way back home faster

Deadmau5 # Clockwork (Helvetic Nerds rMx)

And this, is the perfect track

# Back To The Future #

20 02 2009

I re-watched Back To The Future I & II a couple of weeks ago, and i’m not ashamed to say i still like it…a lot. Especially the 1st episode. Everything is just so good oldies: Cars, clothes, attitudes, fears…and of course Music. That scene with Marty Mc Fly playing the absolute master-piece Johnny Be Goode at the bal is just my fav’ part of the trilogy. I’ve been a big fan of jazz since my dad bought a Selmer saxophone about 18 years ago….[He sold it…to buy a Harley Davidson…Damned….He sold also his Triumph Daytona 1964 to buy that american truck on 2 wheels. Sorry but i never been a fan of Harley…I just prefer other old moto but not those ones] When my dad sold that sax’, i almost cried. Man, it was just a pure object, sound was perfect and ok, i confess i always wanted to get it one day. Too late now, i can only hear the harley noise in the background….
Anyway…Today, i share a complete compilation from Bear Family Records i get at work with Vibrations magazine. At the first listen, i just felt like i was into the movie…This compilation is great.
First cause of the tracklist: so eclectic.
Secondly cause of the quality of tracks, there all sounds so R&B
And at least, i can dance an hour with it, close my eyes and feel i’m back in da past.

I love old songs, old jazz, Billie’s voice on an old vynil…Music who makes you travel

I bought an electric guitar when i was 14 years old, a week after i watched Richie Valens ‘s La Bamba and (yeah…i know it’s almost pathetic but it’s sad movie man… – -‘…erm) also, because i wanted to be a “Marty McFly” playin’ Chuck as good as in the movie.
Cause yeah, Johnny Be Goode just rocks Man.
You can’t say anything….It rocks your socks

So i will say “Shut Up & Dance”
Have a nice week-end
