"Each time my foot hits the sofa, the sound the metallic structure makes is like a bell with a very long resonance. I have to put my hand on it to stop it!" François said to me a few weeks ago.
"Then I have to record it! One never knows what can come out of it in my music!"
"The sofa as musician!" we exclaimed.
And yes, for the Weinert documentary project, one of my new musicians is... the sofa! Recording it was a pain for the knuckles, but totally worth it.
Once edited and assembled together other the voices and other instruments, it sounded oddly spectacular!
