#DaCaLuF 152: One City, Many Canals.

My track one city [off transient lines (2013)] travels through the fjords of Patagonia on a 4-day ferry voyage with the Bellais family. It’s another fun little vid, and the final shot just makes it for me.

#DaCaLuf 140: Man Again meets El Gaucho

Man Again, the country-fried FMA bonus track off of Transient Lines (2013), soundtracks a Bellais family adventure with a cowboy named Gavino in the town of Cochrane on the Argentinian and Chilean border.

Rencontre avec Gabino, un gaucho du chili.

Musiques :

Gavino ne sait ni lire ni écrire mais il sait faire son pain, le beurre et le fromage, vit depuis 17 ans dans sa ferme isolée sans eau courante ni électricité, avec ses vaches, ses chiens et quelques gentils chevaux.
Lorsque l’on fera le bilan des ces années de voyage, ce n’est pas le Machu Picchu ni les chutes d’Iguazu qui arriveront en tête des meilleurs souvenirs, mais ces rencontres authentiques autour du partage et de la simplicité!
Gavino can neither read nor write, but he knows how his bread, butter and cheese, lived for 17 years in his isolated farm without running water or electricity, with cows, dogs and some nice horses.
When will take stock of these years of travel, this is not the Machu Picchu or the Iguazu Falls arriving in mind the best memories, but the authentic encounters around the sharing and simplicity!

#DaCaLuF 124: Fire In The Arcuide

fire in the arcade [off transient lines (2013)] soundtracks a Bellais family adventure amidst cliff-dwelling Patagonian parrots (Monk Parakeets) in Argentina.

#DaCaLuF 094: Ziplining To Zipline

The Bellais family from France (David, Camille, Lucile et Félix, aka “DaCaLuF“) is traveling around the world in a converted old fire truck for two years. I learned all about them last week when David Bellais contacted me through vimeo to say he’d used a track of mine in one of his regular video chronicles of their experiences. How xlcnt, then, to see Zipline [off Hola, Sayulita! (2010) and Reflected.10×10 (2012)] soundtracking his family’s actual zipline rides. The joy of these kids, the opportunity for exploration afforded them by their parents, the wild overarching celebration of life inherent in this random yet calculated organic adventure – all adds up to something special. A track of mine somehow touched a small piece of that and it reaffirms why I write songs. Thank you, Bellais’es and good fortune!

Suspendu au dessus de la jungle !
