Le Son d'Alex is a journey through the soundtrack of your life. It's also a sampler crammed with music and jokes to take you on a journey from prehistory to Gilbert Montagné, from Daft Punk to Booba, via Eagles, Ennio Morricone and Maître Gims.
1/3 MUSIC, 1/3 JOKES, AND 1/3 "YOU'VE GOT TO COME AND SEE HIM!
Because, as Ennio Morricone said, "Music is not a science, but an experience".
You'll finally understand why the true patron saint of music is Johann Sebastian Bach. You'll discover that Les Lacs du Connemara is a breathalyzer song - if you sing it, you're drunk! You'll finally have proof that music is a con artist's trade, because DJs and bank robbers use the same phrase: "Put your hands up in the air, Put your hands up in the air! "
You'll come away from Le Son d'Alex with some true-life anecdotes about how to shine at dinner parties, and the recipe for writing next summer's hit. In fact, this one-man show ends with the audience participating in the creation of a hit. A first! With Le Son d'Alex, you'll hear music like you've never heard it before.
No, Alex Jaffray is not Alex Jaffray. He's Alex JaffrayS. It's certainly the name of the "Start Rec" which he founded in early 2000, facilitates his teleportation as composer, producer and music columnist. Composer for television and cinema, with a dozen feature films and around thirty TV movies and series (Claude Lelouch, Pascal Chaumeil, Laurent Tuel...) He has composed and produced numerous sound identities for brands that you have in your ear without knowing it (Citroën, BNP, TF1, Renault, EDF, La poste mobile...) and for a few flagship programs (Scènes de ménages, C à vous, Stade 2...). And because you have to get up early to talk about film music on TV, he also hosts the musical column on Télématin on France 2, giving him a privileged link with Ennio Morricone, Lalo Schiffrin, Hans Zimmer, Lenny Kravitz, Alexandre Desplat, Lang Lang and Sting...
