WE GAVE OUR MUSIC
TO THE GODS

AND
THE GODS
REMIXED IT

intro
16 ARTISTS
GIVE THEIR VISIONS OF CLAIR OBSCUR'S
WE GAVE A PARTY FOR THE GODS AND THE GODS ALL CAME


In Memory of 
Jean Couturier


The idea was - rather than to propose friend musicians to do the standard exercise of the cover or the remix -
to propose this exercise to artists who are not classified as musicians or who develop their practice
at crossroads. Why ? Because
Clair Obscur have always developed their own music with a real
curiosity for other arts. And because the
friend musicians who make us the honour to take part in
this project - apart from having the good taste to appreciate Clair Obscur ;-) - all have strong interests
for the sonic and musical phenomenon. In brief, by inviting artists who are not labelised as musicians
to
give their visions of our latest album, We Gave A Party For The Gods And The Gods All Came,
we are just placing things in the inverse direction.


L'idée était - plutôt que de proposer à des amis musiciens l'exercice classique de la reprise ou du remix -
de proposer cet exercice à des artistes qui ne sont pas classés comme musiciens ou qui développent
des pratiques à la croisée des chemins. Pourquoi ? Parce que Clair Obscur a toujours développé
sa musique en portant un regard curieux sur les autres arts. Et parce que les artistes amis qui
nous font l'honneur de participer à ce projet - hormis le fait d'avoir le bon goût d'aimer Clair Obscur ;-) -
ont tous un intérêt fort pour le phénomène sonore et musical. En somme, en invitant des artistes
non labelisés musiciens à donner leur vision de notre dernier album, We Gave A party For
The Gods And The Gods All Came
, nous opérons un simple retour des choses.
