Jacque + Jacque = Jacques is the perfect equation for the multi-faceted personality of this capilliarily challenged artist. Lost between reflective meditation and premeditated spontaneity, Jacques composes electronic music. In 2015, his first EP entitled Tout Est Magnifique was released on the label Pain Surprises. Jacques knits garlands of noise from the everyday sounds of nature and ordinary life.

A colourful program, a succession of piece that range from lively street dance to passionate laments, including an original parody of Monteverdi’s famous Lamento della Ninfa. One travels through time to the sound of famous or unheard tunes from 17th century Italy in which le Poème Harmonique have gained worldwide fame. The essence of a formidable social celebration is revived, exalting the echoes of pagan rituals and the triumph of life and delight over war, famine, epidemics and the harshness of existence.
