About Me

CURRENT MISSION

use music as a fourth language!

ABOUT ME

Well... I'm firstly a musician...But I'd say I have a passion for arts in general. I also have a great interest in travels and languages. I've been traveling since I'm very young (with my parents at first, than alone since years)and can't imagine living without moving and discovering new things, new cultures, new musics, and new people. I'm actually planing a great trip in east europe next fall to make a «musical traveling notebook», which means composing each day some music, inspired by what I'll see and hear, and recording ambiant sounds...

I've been to Europe (France, Belgique, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, Italy), to south america (Chile, Cuba), to New-Zealand, to Japan, to USA (New-York, Boston, LA...)
Anyways it's never enough!

PHILOSOPHY

I think the only thing that deserves to be protected and respected and encouraged is art. I think that it is gonna be the last thing on earth that will continue to make sense when everything else is gonna crash. I guess art is also a synonym of love, so I also believe in love. In fact, I believe in all the things that make humans more human, in the good sense of it.

Interests

Music of course. Cinema. Litterature. Upright and electric basses. Learning. Cooking. Biking (no car... just a bike, ooh I love bikes). Waching foot. Rest. Sleep. Meet people. Having some incredibly interesting conversations with strangers, especially in spanish. Smell the first spring in Montreal. Having tons of projects. Examine how life is changing (so fast!).
