"Eric Desjeux is a filmmaker and a documentarist. He uses a different name for his sonic productions. A person of many talents, he is incredibly active in the world of non-academic experimental music. He is also an insatiable traveler.

Knowing this, I have asked him to compile a work that was a result of his travels and to approach the release as a filmmaker rather than a sound artist.

Foofi is a mixture of documentary and personal journal. Interviews (in french) tell tales about people who went away and about people who stayed. The heat and the big continent of Africa are almost palpable.

Recorded in West Africa from 2017 to 2019
edited in Europe on March 2021

For this release I used found commercial tapes.
The quality of the -used- tape adds an extra, almost organic dimension to the recordings.
Each release will have a different cover.

length of the cassette: 2×15 minutes"
