Rear Window is a series of minimal ambient improvisations performed during the Parisian lockdown, Spring 2020. All volume covers introduces an object that I use to play the prepared guitar.

Each impro starts more or less from a field recording from my rear window in a small courtyard in the northern area from Paris Montmartre. During the springtime 2020, two young girls from our neighborhood were regularly playing together. I begun to record them from our flat on the fourth floor. listening to nothing else than their small talks and a natural reverb. The girls were happy, their noisy children's games was a bit of fresh air… One day a deranged man from the building next shouted at them, saying it was against the law and we should all be 'locked down'. He called the police, who came, but did nothing. Since this incident the girls have been too scared to play in our courtyard, to our regret.

The 60 minutes episodes of this series have been broadcast on the ANTIVIRUS programme on P-node radio and later on Radiophrenia temporary art radio station from Glasgow Centre for Contemporary Arts in 2020.
