have been great friends and have collaborated together on many projects.
us about your first meeting
We met while he was
working in Manhattan, and I was orchestra leader for Gilbert Becaud. I
went to rent some instruments, and I saw his name on a door of
his studio. I knocked, and we became instant friends, or even
brothers. He demonstrated his Moog and Ondioline, and his
compositions. Jean-Jacques introduced me to a new kind of music. His
Ondioline, and Moog fascinated me. His ease in composing, and his great
talent for melodies is also amazing.

He opened me up to
new sounds and ideas in music. He was AVANT-GUARD, and he changed my
conception of music.
