Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Jean-Brice Godet, I call him Godot. like Beckett's character. Because he is far and near at the same time. Like his music. He seems to come to take us by the hand so that we will not be afraid, and when he has tamed us, he leaves us face to ourselves, all alone, in the snow. I could believe that he knows more than us, that he knows a place all his, made with colored pencils, scissors, scraps of paper, magnetic tapes. but there is a drone above this world, a drone that hovers very low over our heads with pieces of voice like whispers. these voices make rain fall. and the rain, when she is generous, it does not forgive."-Marine Mane.
