Deprived of stage, confinement obliges, the singer -M- decided to give a concert on Thursday 26 March from his living room, retransmitted in verbalize on Fb at 16 h 30. A “great little concert” special for children in front of Internet users. “It’s a return to yourself, it’s during these moments that we write songs,” Matthieu Chedid, alias -M-, told franceinfo. Last Friday, the singer and guitarist was already staged in an acoustic living room, still from his living room, with his daughter. “I saw that it was good for people, also good for singing. I think that it is the role of artists, to be able to bring back a little melodies and poetry in this context,” he said. explained.franceinfo: What did the spectators of this are living from last Friday tell you in the comments? Matthieu Chedid: I was a bit overwhelmed. There were really many on the phone. I think there was quite simply a vibration of love, a little tenderness, melodies, colors. And music, which is pretty vital in those moments too. We saw you experimenting, apologizing for catching up on you because it was a second that you hadn’t played this or that song … Is there a slightly exposed side? These completely exceptional moments lead to proposals from the same kind. Indeed, I might never have naked with my daughter in the living room in another context. That brings us to a certain humanity and fragility, to assume more. That is what is interesting. Me, I tend to see the positive everywhere despite many very hard things to live. In this experience, there are positive things and initiations to come out. This Thursday afternoon, you play for children? Yes, I told myself that there must be quite a few who would like to want to change a little ideas. And then I am a child myself in a way. This concert is also for oldsters, of course. But I’m going to focus my songs a little more on the kids. How do you make song choices? I use social media. I ask people to suggest songs to me. Next, I do my summary run to choose in order to make a sort of list. So I asked the oldsters to leave me messages with the titles of their children’s favorite songs inside. And There you go. There are very obvious songs like “Le soldat rose” or “La Seine” which are intended for children, but there are others, a little more rare, which we think less of. Is there more time to write? Yes, we notice that we slow down the time a little and that there are much less movements, passages. It’s a return to self, it’s during these moments that we write songs. It’s a bit premature, but here I’m in educate to write a song about what we’re experiencing in this second one. These are pretty intense moments of inspiration. What will you do when you come out of confinement? I’m obviously going to do concert events, because I was on tour when the confinement was decreed, and we had to postpone. So, hoping that everything will take on a more human and unifying feel, I should go back on tour from this summer or in September. In any case, I hope to find people and make them dance, sing, dream a little.
