The collection that celebrates albums, live!
Each episode is a pure video version of an album, its subject and its imagery, using a tailor-made film and narrative device!
The Live Show
Each band plays its latest album, in full and in the same order as the marketed tracklist.
To better reflect the imagery in the album, the setting is different for each band: a car park, a village hall, a Breton island, a circus, a 70's soul train-style TV studio... But the audience has to adapt too, the guests only being admitted if they follow the specified dress-code: a 1970’s wedding guest, a 1980's raver, a clown, a working class rebel...
The Fictional Element
To support the subject of the albums, sketches filmed with actors punctuate the live performances.
Throughout the series, we are guided by a character not unlike the presenter in The Twilight Zone, who is outside the time and space of the film. This timeless storyteller, played by Mexianu Medenu, becomes our reference point. Always dressed the same way, he directs or misdirects the viewer and provides information on the album’s tracks and the themes.
