Alix Tucou – Portraits [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

Imagination, Soundscapes, Bass Trombone.

Your music has an experimental tone. Should music as a form of art always challenge the listener?

I think that it should “sometimes” challenge the listener, so the challenge will be full rounded you know ? If Music challenges always, we are going to get to used to the challenge which will become the “normality”…

Do you like the idea of collaborating? Is songwriting a lonely process?

I love to collaborate with other peoples…On this Album I had the chance to work with extremely talented Musicians like Simon Denizart (piano) , Thomas Julienne (Upright Bass) or Dustin Carlson (Guitar). I had too the luck to work with visual artist on some songs like “Somewhere” on which I crafted the Music around a piece of Art from Fiber Artist Grazia Inserillo.
As much as songwriting is a very introspective process, nourishing it with external inputs is very important to me.

Favourite album of the past year?

Djesse Vol.3 by Jacob Collier.

What is the biggest challenge you have faced as an artist so far?

I think it would apply to all of us: Keeping going on and believing in yourself and your quest.

If you were asked to rescore a film, which one would you choose?

I would love to score for Ghost Dog of Jim Jarmush…there are some strong similarities between the personality of the main carter and a musician or an artist in general, to me !!

You’d give up making music for…

Nothing !!!!

Thank you!
