3 PLACES YOU HAVE TO PUT ON YOUR BUCKET LIST !

BISTROT And this is the last Bali place I want to share with you... It is in Semyniak, a more crowded area with shops and restaurants everywhere... I was attracted by the large windows outside of The Bistrot restaurant and love the mix of vintage items and modern fabric... The place is huge, very high and the food is as good as the decoration ! The menu features vintages french ads, so I feel like home...

SINGAPORE . FEBRUARY 19TH 2013

OF SINGAPORE The CSHH coffee (Chye Seng Huat Hardware) is a new, but already famous, coffee shop in Singapore. But it is not only that, it is also a coffee school and you can found everything for fan of coffee... I love the «capsules are dead» causers. The problem of travelling for so long is that you have to limitate your bagages, otherwise I would buy a lot of things in this shop... Introduced by the nice guys of the ACRE team (will talk about them soon) I had the chance to have a private visit of all the place, even the offices and baristas teaching rooms... memories...

Just after we met and have a great coffee at CSHH with T Y Zheng and Jason Song, the man behind ACRE, we jump into a car to visit their studio. It is a great square white space full of geek tools and toys ! I heard about ACRE after seeing the Units of measure calendar on insagram, if I well remember... This is unique and amazing poster with thousand of details... My first idea was to sell some in the shop here, but it was out of stock before this could happen !!! They just launch a second edition if you want it. Here comes some picture of I took, and some of the project of this young and promising Singapore studio. WWW. ACRE . S G

For all those who don’t know Piers Faccini (shame on you), he’s a singer, composer, songwriter, photographer, painter... mixing English and Italian origins! I’ve followed him since his first album, «Leave no trace» in 2004 and for all the subsequent albums, I’ve seen him live twice, including an impressive showcase in a French record shop, where with only his voice, guitar and harmonica he can give you have chills ! But apart from the music, I like how he is involved in all the creative process of his albums, making the artwork and doing the photos and designing the sleeves with designer Uncle O... He is for me a full creative, passionate artist doing things just for the pleasure and beauty of it all…

With the magic of social media you now can be in contact with everyone, even if it is most of the time «virtual»... But this time it became much more concrete... After his tweet about a demo of one of his songs on soundcloud, I just retweeted it and we started a tweet exchange... He likes this blog and as I know he lives near me (now I am back in the south of France), I asked him if we can meet to share about design and inspiration... I came to graphic design through a passion for music, not the kind you play but the stuff you listen to... I’ve collected records over the years and spent more time looking for rare LPs or 7» vinyl when I was young instead of losing time in bars like most of my friends. So meeting a global creative artist like this, someone I admire and inspires so much through his music was really exciting… Our meeting was set up in his house, on May 9th... Piers lives a nice home in «Les Cevennes» with his wife and their 2 kids, and has a small house at the back of the garden where he can create, paint, and record his albums... We spent some hours talking about the process of the design of his album sleeves, about how today you can do your own promotion and be in contact directly with people who like what you do... I asked him to write me about all that we had talked about via email so as to have his own words (in italic black).

MY WILDERNESS SLEEVE PROCESS I have always been fascinated by these portraits used on his 4th album, even more now that I know how they were made... I always thought it was done with photoshop but actually Piers told me «I don’t even have it !». He did these self portraits by cutting up maps ! Impressive... And it’s part of the whole concept of the album : The whole thing was inspired by a song ‘my wilderness’ that I wrote in the year that album was taking shape : «Here was sorrow and here was I / Here was anger and here was my / Wilderness where I’d remain / Emptiness forever retain» The idea came to me that when I write it’s as if I go roaming in a desert, in a place where nothing is marked or signposted, nothing is permanent... In this metaphorical place I’m happy to be lost as I always end up finding something unexpected. A seed or a fragment of something that slowly grows into a poem or a song. So with my songs I map my very own wilderness, I transcribe its geography and songs are the end result. This wilderness as well as being imaginary refers also to physical/emotional/spiritual journeys and discoveries.. That’s how the idea of making a self portrait with maps came about. In order to tell a story, I deliberately chose maps not only for their colours but because of the links my music had with those places. For my skin I used the Sahara, for my shirt Mississippi and Texas, for my hair walking maps of the Cevennes. In fact, this side portrait was use on the American version of the album, while a front on portrait was used on the French sleeve. When I asked, Piers told me that when he presented the idea to the record company, the boss didn’t like it ! But if he had to choose, he preferred the front on one... Luckily, the American label preferred the side one so in the end both portraits were used ! The US album also contains 2 more songs, which was how Piers conceived the album, but the French record company thought it was too long...
