A new collaboration

Have you ever wondered where that lovesick rooster/guitarist that identifies me on the home page of this website comes from? It’s a creation of the visual artist Manu, who also created the whole superb cover of my second album, Rumeurs dans la basse-cour (Rumours in the barnyard), in 1977.  At the time, we even had a large cardboard cut-out of the rooster on stage with me when I played!

After so many years of friendship, even with little contact brought on by our respective work, I am very proud to announce a new collaboration with Manu and his associate Marie-Laure in the production of videos which represent living quotations of one of the greatest Canadians, Jean Vanier. Philosopher, theologian and humanitarian, Jean Vanier founded L’Arche, an international federation of communities for people with developmental disabilities and those who assist them.

Here is the first “living quotation.” This represents a new way of letting people discover the richness of the message through a sequence of images enhanced by music. It’s also a first try so please share your comments.
