MARK HOLLIS Fourviere Interview Translation To English & A Little Change

And I did it again! But this time, it is from French to English. I didn't realized until someone asked me, that most people couldn't understand this interview because of the translator's voice covering Mark's one. It is very short, but still, it is very interesting. The ancient theater in Fourviere is absolutely amazing!
You will also find here my considerations about the Sacred Music: Talk Talk, Pink Floyd.
And finally, I explain a little change in my way of working, with an artistic project to come.
It is hard to be passionate about Art and Music, and still having to work everyday like if Art didn't exist, or almost. That is what I want to change too...

60's - 70's Street MUSIC + Violin, Psychedelic & More, Artwalk Night

My DJ and friend Ron Kane chose great musics that night, and David Strother, the violinist improvised rather well on them. 
Here was our last Artwalk Night.

Unfortunately, my camera dropped dead before the end, just when a lot of people arrived and were dancing in front of my shop.
A friend of mine took a photo of a few of us in my shop:

 it was a great souvenir for my Birthday, which was one day before, but I never celebrate it on the 11th because of 9/11.

All these musics that I listened to or could have listened to during my childhood are so wonderful, so full of images, conveying a form of hope and joy that we don't feel much nowadays. I am not certain that people were more joyful in the 60's or 70's but they were more spontaneous and innocent for sure.

On the Thumbnail of this video, it is a painting "The Myth of the Isle of Wight" that I made years ago about several artists playing there in 1970. It was the last time that we saw Jimi Hendrix on stage and there were The Moody Blues, The Who, The Doors and many others... Why the Myth? Because I would love to attend a festival there one day. I don't know if it is any good today, but for me, the Isle of Wight is something that I didn't do when I was still small. I easily imagine why my parents didn't want me to go! :-) I was anyway way too young.
Am I today too old? :-) 
We are never too old for Music.

Mark Hollis SPIRIT OF EDEN Talk Talk w/o Music For Non-European Viewers

This is almost the same video as the one I posted just before. I however removed all the musical part, because it seems that in this context, Spirit of Eden is only allowed in Europe.
Spirit of Eden is a way too good album to be ignored in the US, Canada and many other countries. I wanted to share my passion for it with you as well.
I am just very sorry that I can't share the Music parts and the Magic with you in this video...
