Moments proposes to discover a new dimension of Ludovic Chemarin©, thanks to a major edition: a limited edition box comprising three vinyl records accompanied by a booklet.
Continuing the logic of co-authoring, music was entrusted to musician Christophe Demarthe and libretto’s text to writer Olivier Combault. The box brings together four composite moments, to immerse oneself in a particular atmosphere, sharing and appropriating Ludovic Chemarin©. A text derived from the biography Total Recall, 38,652 signes (espaces compris), taking the form of a singular fiction, offers a literary interpretation of the artist.
This production opens a more intimate, airy, diffuse and sensitive dimension around the project and the artist ©.
The musician Christophe Demarthe, aka Coccon, is the singer of Clair Obscur, one of the leading French bands of the 80s post-punk scene, and today co-founder of the project Acoustic Cameras. Cocoon presents itself as a global project mixing indifferently electronic music, video, photo, text, performance. A global project that led Ludovic Chemarin© proposing to him to compose a new and intimate work, giving life to a sound atmosphere specific to the project and its singularity.
Olivier Combault is a writer and professor of modern letters. The text of the libretto entrusted to him presents itself as a fiction, using writing and words as an attempt to create a self-portrait or multiple births of Ludovic Chemarin©. A literary interpretation that makes sense in the evolution of the project and its scope.
