“we cross the fence, enter the field, nobody knows we’re here…
This song is published today, in the middle of a hot Summer. I’m currently in the countryside walking barefoot on dry grass. At night I look up at the stars. I see shooting stars and satellites. I think about all the things and interactions with beings that have led to that moment. This very place is one of them. And I can send wishes to the future… I won’t tell you what they’re about, but as I formulate them I’m holding my friends’ hands; the present ones, the future ones and the ones that are gone. All at once.
We arranged this song on the day that we recorded it, in February 2021. Louis Jucker suggested the idea of playing it together with Nicolas Pittet, live on a piano. We found a way of playing a beat with our feet pressing on the pedals. I would play the main theme, and Nicolas would add basses and harmonies to the melodies. While we were rehearsing, Kevin Galland placed the microphones and Louis Jucker installed small cameras around us linked to a home-made video mixer, and has been able to capture this take we kept for the record, edited live on VHS. And that was it.”
