    On the occasion of the contemporary art and heritage biennial ARTour (Centre Region - Belgium), visual artist Jean-François Octave (BE) invited Philippe Franck aka Paradise Now (BE/FR) to compose 2 original sound environments, one for the JHS / Tabula exhibition at the Collegiate Church of Soignies (during summer of 2022 - curator: Jean-Pierre Denefve) and the other for the S + S + S exhibition at the Victor Jara cultural space (which followed in autumn 22 - curator: Eric Claus).

    These itinerant and immersive sonic creations (including for the limited edition of this CD split album, an original 24 page booklet conceived by JF Octave) dialogue for the first exhibition with non-religious spirituality confronting here with a libertarian pop vision and for the second one, with fragments of newspapers written and illustrated by JF Octave, also retracing, between Brussels and New York, a form of life itinerary nourished by artistic, friendly and loving encounters.

------

A l'occasion de la biennale d'art contemporain et du patrimoine ARTour (Région Centre - Belgique), l'artiste plasticien Jean-François Octave (BE) a invité Philippe Franck aka Paradise Now (BE/FR) à composer 2 ambiances sonores originales, l'une pour la JHS / Exposition Tabula à la Collégiale de Soignies (pendant l'été 2022 - commissaire : Jean-Pierre Denefve) et l'autre pour l'exposition S+S+S à l'espace culturel Victor Jara (qui a suivi à l'automne 22 - commissaire : Eric Claus) .

Ces créations sonores itinérantes et immersives (dont pour l'édition limitée de ce CD split album, un livret original de 24 pages conçu par JF Octave) dialoguent pour la première exposition avec une spiritualité non religieuse confrontée ici à une vision pop libertaire et pour la seconde , avec des fragments de journaux écrits et illustrés par JF Octave, retraçant également, entre Bruxelles et New York, une forme d'itinéraire de vie nourri de rencontres artistiques, amicales et amoureuses.
