HITS (vinyl LP)

Simon Ripoll-Hurier - HITS (vinyl LP)
A territorial project but also a collective, musical, social and political experience of listening and exchange.
A possible draft of a new public service, the HITS recording studio welcomed, with or without an appointment, five days a week and eight hours a day, anyone who wished to participate in the elaboration and recording of songs, without distinction of style or musical level. The artist Simon Ripoll-Hurier thus gathered a group of people coming from rap, experimental music, poetry, to produce "hits". HITS has become a radio creation that retraces this experience, draws a portrait of contemporary suburbia through the musical question, and is now released on vinyl.
Simon Ripoll-Hurier (born 1985, lives and works in Paris) develops a work on "collective images", at the intersection of music and visual arts. He plays with the instrumental surf band Les Agamemnonz and co-founded *DUUU.
