Tell us how you have known
I knew JJ thanks to his music but get in touch with him thanks to the
Incredibly Strange Music Books where he published his address in Vichy
at the time...
Tell us your first meeting
We first spoke on the phone... Which was kind of really surprising for
me!!!! but then we met in a restaurant... I canít remember which one
it was but i was like 18...
Tell us how this
meeting and working with Jean Jacques has changed your life, what it
gives to you everyday
He asked me to help him work in France, i knew the people and then we
did a few things over the years together.... But he introduced me to a
lot of people and that was an incredible thing being involved with an
early electronic artist at the time when French Touch started!!!
Tell us what is your
favourite title of Jean Jacques and Why
not a particular track , i really love ìCadmus le robot de
líespaceî which is an amazing story read with electronics in the
background... So JJ!! iím also really fan of Gossipo Perpetuo... On
which i used to teach kids how to listen to music..
If you have an anecdote...
Once we were in Radio Nova for an interview and the main guy there Loik
Dury to who i was talking to said ìoh youíre here with JJ Perrey...
Cool but heís dead!!!î and then JJ came out of the toilet saying ìHellOOOOOO!!!î
You can finish by some words to
JJ, you change the music for its whole history, you changed our lives...
Live long!!!! and hope to be there when weíll ask speaks to dolphins!!!
