Clair Obscur, We Gave Our Music To The Gods And The Gods Remixed It


CD OS.052 | 2011 | Sixteen 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 honor 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 labelled 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.
