My latest mini-documentary…….with Ghislain Poirier. The initial interveiw was made at his friend’s amazing rooftop apartment in DUMBO, Brooklyn and then we headed over to the Sub Swara party at Love in the city. New York City, in case you weren’t sure….There’s also some footage from the Club Transmediale festival in Berlin, as well as some excerpts from his music video clips.
I’ve been a big fan of Ghis’ full, round and sturdy minimal beats for a long time. He’s curious and open to new sounds. He does tropical tracks. In Montreal. He’s a really sweet, friendly and open guy, which, I think, is a big reason why he’s made all of these great tracks and collaborations. He makes the effort to get out and connect with folks from all over the place. It shows in the music.
In the process of editing, I started gathering all of his laughs and putting them at the end of the sequence, not really knowing what I’d do with them. ghislain breakcore laugh track? Sorry, they didn’t make it into the final cut, but just so you know, there were a LOT of them!
With this series of mini-docs, I want to demystify the music production process a bit and bring out the humanity of it. After all, music is a manifestation of history. of choices and relationships. This is common to any art, discipline, individual, group or society. Through communication, real and imaginary differences and similarities become clearer. Separatist ghetto exoticism cannot exist in this space. Tamu juntos e misturados.
