that was exactly how it was
if we remembered what it was like
we remember.

‘Are you recording?’

This time we returned the recorder to ourselves.

We invited a band (3 musicians) and 2 more musicians, for a total of 5, so that, in the deafening noise they make (it's called music, man !, oh, yeah), they don't let us think that much. Remembering, enough. Tell each other, that's enough. Dance, too. Sing, sometimes hum, other times. Others, just listening, enough.

This time, the recorder came back to us.

Yes, what are you recording about?

What we heard part of our experiences of listening to alternative music - of different styles - from the mid-80s to the transition to the 90s (since, on the scene, there are different generations, so it will be more rigorous to say that it extends in time beyond [and before] that time). It is, above all, a show about how music was and is part of the identity of the people who listen to it, and about a time when the materiality of music was crucial and when many of our activities and experiences were organized around it.

For example, buying vinyl with limited allowances, exchanging them in the middle school yard, making friends because of it, buying cassettes to record those vinyls, which multiplied like that, or buying concert cassettes that are really rare and even badly recorded but very precious. , or tapes recorded with radio programs made by us and for us. Or, when what we heard was too much of what we were - or, how music gave us an identity. What we heard takes us on a journey through personal stories related to music and its consumption, which created and defined identities over time that still last.
