Who are you Thomas Malésieux ?
A librarian. Giving good advice, I hope.
What are the inspiration sources for this text ?
Michelangelo Antonioni's movies, overdrafts, for some, during the course of this project. A source and a greeting. He was an incredible witness of his time.
Surely there are other presences and influences, but I wanted to be in a fiction, or even a soap opera, without much known figures.
Can you tell us more about the circumstances and the creation process of 'Histoire d'un document retrouvé' ?
Circumstances undoubtedly results from a meeting with David in the late 90's in London, on the trail of a festival. He regularly invited me afterwards to write and record some texts and immediately agreed to put 'Histoire d'un document retrouvé' in music.
Discovering the instrumentals and hearing other voices that give life to the characters, are for me, the highlights of the process.
What's the cinema for you in ?
Wait for news, read too much critics on upcoming movies. And possibly be delighted to see them in a theatre.
What are your needs of the moment and your upcoming projects ?
Drop a few tracks on the radio for the 10 years of the Hyperdub label, try to go to Art Basel, hide somewhere for a few days this summer to write new texts.
