Crazy Frenchman Jacques turns ordinary sounds into electro mixes, adding the sound of a four-color pen, a kettle, a bike chain, or a spray bottle to a synthetic beat and keyboard melodies. Those are just some of the sound experiments of this guy who is like an alchemist with the objects around him. Since he started out in 2013 in Parisian artists’ squats and workshops, Jacques has liked composing in the moment, crafting his tunes with spontaneity and pushing artistic experimentation to the limit. Jacques looks at the world in an optimistic way, like the savvy Salut C’est Cool – he tries to sublime the ‘ugly’. After his first EP, Tout est magnifique, this tinkerer with a half-shaved noggin surprised his followers this spring by composing his whole new album live…on Facebook.
