"Fleuve", le nouveau disque de Ô PAON, prend son temps.
Non, ce ne sont pas des photos prises par satellite des anneaux de la planète Saturne, mais plutôt des photos des sillons endommagés des tests que nous avons déjà reçus et écoutés à deux reprises. Ça sonne comme du popcorn et il faudra attendre un peu avant de vous annoncer la sortie de mon prochain disque. On espère que ça va se passer bientôt.
"Fleuve", the new record by Ô PAON, is taking its sweet time.
No, those are not satellite pictures of Saturn’s rings but rather pictures of the damaged grooves found on the test pressings we received and listened to twice already. It sounds just like popcorn and we will have to wait to announce the release of my next record. We hope that will happen soon.
There’s what’s unknown.
There’s what’s online.
If a tree falls and it isn’t on Wikipedia
then did the tree really fall ?
In late December I resigned myself to spend only
an hour a week on the internet.
Checking email was a habit
which made me a sad animal
I am an addict:
It is when I need it the most
that I can’t seem to suck more love out of the computer.
Halfway through February I was still doing quite well
reading those books on the shelves
catching up with the world.
And then I started sneaking a peek again
once a day sometimes, and three times a day last week.
A lot of people looking for love,
for positive reinforcement online
I can’t deal anymore
with my loved ones’ exhibitionism
and with my own.
There are more pressing matters
projects to finish
and a real life to get on with.
Production must replace
the promotion of the self.
Let’s see where that takes us
— Geneviève Castrée, April 20th 2014.
Je ne suis pas capable de jeter les crayons feutres que j’ai depuis que j’ai dix ans, même s’ils sont tous super usés.
I find myself unable to throw away the felt pens I’ve had since I was ten, even if they are all pretty worn out.
Q: What often proves to be difficult for you during the creative journey?
A: Getting started. Making the transition from the world of washing dishes and sweeping the floor and chopping wood and making meals to sitting down and entering a fictional world via a blank sheet of paper. I will do almost anything to avoid getting to work. And then, when the work starts going well, I don’t want to leave the world I have invented for myself.

Ô PAON se prépare à aller jouer dans les villes, deux fois plus forte qu’avant (on l’espère) avec des nouvelles chansons. /
Ô PAON is getting ready to go play in the cities, twice as loud as before (hopefully) with new songs.
