Jacques is a French artist whose music transcends conventions, positioning him between sound art and performance. Known for his whimsical hairstyle, he is better renowned for his experimental and sometimes provocative approach, engaging in a creative process where reinvention is constant. His music, marked by what he calls his "Vortex Theory," explores the boundaries of sound and its manipulation, transforming everyday objects into innovative instruments.
His compositions, often described as meticulously disorganized, reflect a committed artistic freedom and a desire to disregard musical boundaries. His inspirations vary widely, ranging from everyday moments to sometimes complex social interactions, and manifest in performances that leave no one indifferent. The recognition of his work by the Victoires de la Musique in France underscores the impact of his exceptional oeuvre.
During his live performances, Jacques offers a complete experience, where sounds captured in real-time are reassembled into an auditory collage that mystifies expectations, making each performance a unique and unpredictable event. His boldness and originality make him a beacon in the experimental contemporary music scene.
