Jim O'Rourke : Chicago, New-York, Tokyo et Paris quelquefois

1 2 3 4 5

You work with numerous artists, many of which you admire. Do you still have people in mind you'd love to work with ?
There always is. You know, I've been very lucky to get to work with a lot of great people. An people I never thought I would be able to get to work with.
(pause pensive) I don't know. I think I need a break from working WITH people ! (rire.) It's been like ten years straight of it. There's a lot of people I would love to do things with but it wouldn't be necessarily collaborate. Because a lot of people I like, they do great on their own. I don't want to mess it up. For instance I love Albert Marcoeur, if I could do like reissue the records or help them get more available. But collaborate ?... I'd rather him just make a new record of his own than collaborate. (rire.) A lot of people I like I just want them to keep doing their stuff.

Lately you put out 2 very different records. Insignificance on Domino for Europe, and I'm happy and I'm singing... on the German label Mego. In what direction will you go next ?
I'm sure I won't make another record for another 2 years. So I have no idea. I doubt I'll make a record for a long time.
you'll be on the road ...
No, it's just that it takes me years to make a record. Most of the stuff on the Mego record is already like 3 years old. I just take a long time to do records on my own.

20h30, l'auditorium est plein. j'ai des sérieux doutes sur le fait que Lon Chaney et son film muet puisse intéresser autant de gens, ce qui prouve par la même occasion que Jim O'Rourke peut rassembler plus de 500 personnes sur son seul nom. Pour être tout à fait honnête, je n'ai pas été vraiment époustouflé par la prestation électronique d'O'Rourke, qui n'a pas fait preuve d'une grande diversité d'ambiances pour accompagner les 80 minutes du film, par manque de préparation peut-être. Mais l'essentiel de la journée pour moi n'était pas là.

Un grand merci à Jim pour sa disponibilité et sa gentillesse, à l'équipe de l'auditorium du Louvres, et particulièrement à Valérie Brisset du service de presse.
