5. In which environment do you like to record music?
From 9 am to 7 pm, monday to friday.

6. What will music sound like in 50 years / 5000 years?
There is not one music to me, so it's pretty hard to predict anything for the next 50 years.
In 5000 years : hopefully the human race will have disappeared. And so will be the concept of music.

7. Which underrated album will start a new musical genre?
I don't really like the concept of musical genre. I like people who make personal music.

There are absolutely so many records that should be mentioned here...

9. Your favourite album to have a drink?
Le Marteau sans maitre by Pierre Boulez.

Le Marteau sans maitre by Pierre Boulez.

My Game of Loving by White Noise

Sébastien Roux.

16. The cover version you would love to do?
A Neil Young cover I guess. Don't let it bring you down maybe ?

Les Thugs with Pierre Boulez. It works. I tried that during a wedding party.

The last text I work on was a Célia Houdart's one and I hope the next one will be by Célia too !

As far as I can remember, no.
