Third collaboration between electronic music producer December and photograph / video artist Marie Quéau, "When All Of This Is Over We Will Seek The Ones Who Played With Our Lives" is an echo of the A/V live show the two artists are currently working on together. The project is called "Paris, 2021" and will take the form of a live music & images show using Science-Fiction themes and obsessions to talk about the present ; not this convenient and distant fiction that the future became.
The present is here. He is political, poetical, and he is knocking on our doors. Don't we want to look at it?
Mixing amateur videos and images shot by Marie to the point of being indistinguishable, the two artists take on Science-Fiction calls for a violent realization of what is already taking place in front of our eyes, not in a hundred years like fiction often depicts it.
"When All Of This Is Over We Will Seek The Ones Who Played With Our Lives", taken from December's recently released EP on Veyl Records, uses the myth of the wild child (as in Truffaut's "L'enfant sauvage" or Herzog's "The enigma of Kaspar Hauser"), called "Max" here, to take us on a tour of our disturbed daily world that we often tend not to watch, keeping our eyes wide shut."
