Quentin Rollet lays his mini tape synthesizer and saxophones on drum tracks recorded by Kim Giani in 2015, that is to say in the world before confinement. A humorous and energetic project, realized in a period of global boredom.

Kim Giani (Kim Stanislas Giani, known as Kim and many other aliases, born 1977 in Cannes) is a prolific singer and multi-instrumentalist, author of several dozen albums, navigating between pop, punk, free jazz, folk and experimental music.
Quentin Rollet (born 1974) started playing the alto saxophone at the age of 11 and the sopranino saxophone at 37. After a few years spent unlearning the teaching of the conservatory, he devoted himself solely to free improvisation. This led him to play on record or on stage with groups as varied as Nurse With Wound
