Its oxygen, it is the VIIIe arrondissement. It is at the heart of this parisian neighborhood that Jean-Michel Jarre has chosen to live his equinoxes creative, to create new songs magnetic… “The sounds of a neighborhood have always been important to me,” explained the musician. Already, as a kid, I invested a great deal of attention to the sounds of the Perrache train station in Lyon where I was born. Now that I live and work in the VIIIe arrondissement, it is the same thing.”

the man who was the student of Pierre Schaeffer in the Groupe de recherches musicales (GRM), hosted by the INA, has decided to sponsor the festival Inasound, new appointment-you email, which takes place on 8 and 9 December 2018 at the Palais Brongniart. “Pierre Schaeffer, the man who could make music by manipulating the sound, was my mentor,” explains Jean-Michel Jarre. It was the father of all DJ’s of today. This is why I particularly want to stress the importance of his work in the heart of the Inasound.” The son of film composer Maurice Jarre will lead a masterclass, “where it will be question of the immense heritage generated by the techno, while treating also the aspect of transmission related to these technologies, between DJ sets, live machines, conferences, master classes, workshops, kids, expo, or electronic market”.

The best tartare in Paris Le Bar des Theatres. Bar des Theatres

I love The Bar des Theatres, a legendary place which once was opposite the Theatre des Champs-Elysees, where Stravinsky created The Rite of spring in 1913. It was a place where paraded all the artists after their performances. Today, it remains famous for his steak tartare, the best in Paris. I am a strong advocate of this style of establishment, a real brewery to the French!

An airport where we departed ever

For me, the Drugstore des Champs-Élysées is linked to adolescence, this time when I was listening to Jacques Dutronc. It makes me think of a kind of airport where you departed forever. It is a place out of time, that has an atmosphere that Roissy, the films of Jacques Tati. This pleases me immensely to walk me to the heart of this place that has cultivated this image of modernity to the old-fashioned…

Library kafkaesque Bookshop of the Palais de Tokyo. Thomas Lannes

I love bookstores like that of the Palais de Tokyo. A bookshop a little kafkaesque, located in a building that never ceases to evolve between the decay and the restoration, where I am sure to find works amazing, I never would have thought to buy at first. It is far from being a bookstore and museum type. It is for this reason that I like to get there. The books are definitely staggered. This is what makes the charm of the place.

Visas to the image

This is a small shop that I recommend to all those who must make do visas for the whole world. Its owner is the specialist of id photos. He knows all the dogmas, the criteria and the whims of the customs of the planet, from North Korea to the United States! His shop is tiny and yet, he is a photographer of great talent, who makes everything by hand. Here is a portrait painter after my own heart…

My bar mythical bar of The Plaza Athénée. LUCIEN LUNG/Le Figaro

This is one of the great hotel bars of Paris. One of those establishments that have seen the biggest stars, from Marlene Dietrich and Cary Grant in passing by Ernest Hemingway. This is my bar mythical, full of history, that has a soul. Every time I go there, I think I find myself in the bar of a clockwork Orange. The deco rétrofuturiste contrast so much with the rest of the palace…

the ritual of The jamon iberico

I have an immoderate love for the “jamon iberico”. And I finally found the shop, which to me provides near me. At Bellota-Bellota, we find what is best. For me, the ham in Spanish is a ritual. In the street, one has even been able to see me bring back to the house. I had almost the air of a Obelix with that big thigh bone that I trimbalais on the shoulder!
