Quoi qu\'il en soit (book + CD) Ghédalia Tazartès - Quoi qu\'il en soit (book + CD)
Isabelle Magnon asked Ghédalia Tazartès to take pictures of his "Cabinet de curiosité". This book shows 40 pictures of Tazartès' objects and small installations. There is a free CD included of the only performance of the trio formed by Ghédalia Tazartès, Jérôme Lorichon (Zombie Zombie, Berg Sans Nipple…) and Quentin Rollet (Nurse With Wound, Mendelson, Pointe du Lac, Red Krayola…), recorded in Eglise Saint-Merry, Paris, France in 2019.
French cult artist with an uncompromising character who defied categorization, Ghédalia Tazartès (1947-2021) recorded alone more than 20 albums, calling his Art "Impromuz" for lack of a better term. Before the years 2000s, his public appearances remained exceptional events. Ghédalia Tazartès' music has always been a mystery. It switches from musique concrète to - existing or invented - ethnic music, from poetry to noise, or from loops and collages to sad and extremely beautiful tunes in a second, but it constantly is in flux and coherent. In 2004, Ghedalia finally decided to do live performances again. He first worked with other musicians (Les Reines d'Angleterre, David Fenech & Jac Berrocal, Norscq & Black Sifichi, Nicolas Lelièvre) then went solo for ten years. Since then Tazartes has played many shows across Europe including a show in the Patti Smith exhibition at Fondation Cartier in Paris and a cinemix to the "Haxan" silent movie in 2008. In 2018 Ghedalia decided to stop playing solo and to collaborate with other musicians again: Maya Dunietz, Rhys Chatham, Chris Corsano and Dennis Tyfus, Quentin Rollet and Jérôme Lorichon.
