“If I want” night

Musician, musician... If I want!!!
The Lucky Dragons strong point is that they escape from the traditional format and turn the audience into playful children, the living-room into a music room, and digital fiddling into a Stradivarius. The couple live in a perpetual residence, and every instant of their life, from morning to night, is a part of their “concert”. Everything but a showcase, a gigantic leap forward in the way of living music and bringing it to life. As regards Señor Huidobro, a rocker from Folkazoïd, he considers that his finest music is a film, and he asks the medieval Van Wissem, who is used to Jim Jarmusch’s craziness, to weave a falsely peaceful web to carry his symphonic poem. The images are notes, the sounds are landscapes, the guitar a paintbrush, the lute a camera…

Stop press!: Since the Lucky Dragons have changed into Lapins Egoïstes (Selfish Rabbits) and their contract has become a gigantic backwards leap, it is Pierre Bastien’s spellbinding trumpet that moves from the Purgatory square to the Paradise square, propelled by the heroic Benoit Delbecq and Steve Argülles, ultra-rapid prestidigitators of pianos. As regards music, did you think you were a little numbed? Well, it’s going to be ten times worse...
