This collection is the result of a cross creation between musicians, poets and a painter, Azul Loeve. This small community was organized by a fellow singer during the first confinement, he wanted texts, melodies, illustrations, rhythm and above all an artistic adventure.
Everything is set up via social networks, messages are flowing, back and forth between the first texts, guitar lines, sketches. The Fraench Social Republik finds its name, refines its first productions, the visuals are synchronized to titles. Some participate anonymously, with new nicknames, as a side-project of their usual band or featuring on a track… the collective is moving.
Since autumn 2020 some of the tracks have been released on the facebook page Fraench SR, with the cyanographies in illustration, and an exhibition of Azul Loeve was planned in October in Paris… with a concert and a drawn performance. This year’s exceptional restrictions prevent from receiving the public, so the works are presented on the artist’s website in an original version, without the graphic additions of the band.
This video was created by YUME UTSUTSU, who is also the graphic designer of the cyanography website. The idea was to hybridize cyanography Chandelle d’Elibert and the natural phenomenon of mumuration.²
