Die Form Quotes
To compose music and create images are an irrepressible need proceeding with the same process, a kind of reason to live, therapy and exorcism. But it is also an endless search, quasi-mystic.
I started to study the drawing and photography while listening to experimental music, mainly German since 1974 (Klaus Schultze, Tangerine Dream, Can, Kraftwerk, Faust, Neu!, Magma...), then to electronic and industrial music (Throbbing Gristle, Heldon, SPK, Suicide, Tuxedomoon, The Residents, and many others). Besides, I was influenced by the experimental and odd cinema, and by books of Henri Michaux, Antonin Artaud, Unica Zürn, and George Bataille. I appreciated particularly the work Hans Belmer, Man Ray, of surrealist artists... I was always attracted by the strange and out-standards things, in particular eroticism and death. The purpose of my first experiments, as a non-musician, was to cause reactions and to shock. Then, after many performances and realizations, my point of view evolved towards something more poetic and intellectual, even if the spirit remains unchanged.
