Benjamin Dupé
Comme je l’entends

Valenciennes > Le Phénix – Cabaret de curiosités > 18:30

benjamin-dupe_comme-je-l-entends_transcultures-2013

Benjamin Dupé is alone on stage as both guitar player and electro-accoustic music composer. He plays his strange music and shows us the bizarre life that goes wih it. With some funny and subtle sense of self-mockery, he creates a dialogue with the “uninitiated” audience’s recorded lyrics. A way to hear the world much more crazier than “contemporary music” would seem to mean.
