RECORDS IN THE HOOD
Rap is a permeable musical genre with cinema. French rap albums are full of sound scenes, where the singers have various roles to transcribe the city in which they lived. Purchase in a kebab, pickpocketing, telephone billing, graffiti on a cop car, sale of narcotics that go wrong, all these auditory interstices slipped into their albums made me want to compose, only with this material, the landscape of a suburb. "Records in th Hood" offer an auditory representation of a suburb fantasized by French rappers. But a blur slips into the pictorial interpretation of these interludes. Total simulacrum under surreal perfusion, the characters come alive in a shadow play decontextualizing these sounds in the multiple frames of an anthology of contemporary architecture. The deliberately offbeat tone removes the effects of reality induced in the words of these authors, leaving the solid stereotypes suburban bare in this setting so often swallowed by violence, the industry of hedonism, the cult of the body, that clips and media spread.
