Pluie/Noir Podcast 022
"Le Gout Sucré de l'Illusion"
Pluie/Noir Podcast is a bi-monthly audio-visual episode representing our work as an artist collective. Each episode will feature a one hour collage/mix by one of our producers/djs and a poster triptych by one of our designers.
We interviewed both artists and dropped some questions about their vision:
Diogo! Finally your submission to our series! How are you?
Happy new year everyone!! Yes finally did it! This podcast has, of course, a special meaning for me, and i wasn't sure where I wanted to take it. So O decided to wait for the right moment, and when it came I finally recorded it and I am trully happy with it.
I feel kind of stoked actually, knowing that a new year is starting, and hoping 2013 will continue to bring us the same love and support we got during last year.
What have you been doing lately?
Mostly spending time with my family in this time of the year. Restoring all my energies so I can start this year in a calm and happy frequency towards all matters.
You had your first international gigs this year. How did you feel about them?
Well, these parties were for sure the most significative experiences I have ever had since I started to work in this area.
For a whole lot of reasons, but specially because you meet and get to spend time with people you admire and share the same interest, love and taste towards music and partying. All this special moments make you look at things in a special way. Also experiencing different crowds and having the oportunity to party in diferent countries sort of helps you define yourself and your aproach towards the music you play.
Your podcast shows us your most intimate side. What can you tell us about it?
I guess that we all have our unique way of feeling these vibes, and recording for pluie/noir was not only a true search for myself within everything i like but also a way in wich I can explore my musical aproach, and take it in a diferent direction, hopefully inspire people who listen to it the same way others inspired me to achieve this final result. When i was recording it, i didnt want to feel it like a collage, so i tried to make an experimental dj set instead. I tried to achieve some harmonic indefinition throughout the session.
Plans for 2013?
I am preparing with some close friends a little contribution to scene for 2013.
Meanwhile I will continue to work and support Pluie Noir during this upcoming year!
Mr. Thibault! The french newcomer to the collective. How are you?
Hello bruno! I'm fine thank you, I feel very proud to participate in the project. I think pluie/noir creates an interesting link between concrete soundscapes & abstraction.
What do you do for a living?
I study sculpture and I draw at home.
You're a visual artist in the fields of drawings, paintings and photographies. Have you been doing art galleries or similar showcases?
I've never exposed my work because i believe I'm not ready, I need more experience and more lessons about life.
You're triptych seems to be about undefinition vs. definition. What can you tell us about it?
I think any piece of art should work on different levels of perception. I also believe in the combination of extremes. For now everything i do is quite personal, I usually don't show my work. I don't really know how to explain this drawing, I try to be spontaneous and create a balance between emptiness & detailled shapes.
I'm intrested in doing drawings for children's books, especially when they hide a moral critic of adult society. Then continue collaborating with music labels since I enjoy the combination of music & visual art. Then i'd like to get into a good art school too.
