BRUT DE RÉPONDEUR


In 1977 answering machines were quite new in France. The whole thing is a kind of strong dramatic cut-up. For a few seconds, sometimes a few minutes, the necessity to go straight to the essential provoques short documentaries which produce the effect of fiction. Some are enigmatic, some crual, there might be an exclusive concert given for only one person... Being alone in front of a machine is like being in front a psychoanalysis! The Sofa Machine. Some will recognize some voices: Colette Magny, Lucilla Galeazzi, Tamia, André Dussollier, Franck Royon Le Mée, Bernard Parmegiani, Steve Stapleton, Laurent Bayle, Claude Tchamitchian,  Jouk Minor, Marie-Jo Lafontaine, Dominique Cabrera, Bernard Eisenschitz, Jean-André Fieschi, Henry Colomer, Kent Carter, François Tusques, Henri Texier, Lindsay Cooper, Hélène Sage, etc.
