Words to the Blind

When Savages meets the japan­ese band Bo Ningen in 2013 to write a simul­ta­ne­ous sonic poem’ — inspired by the Dadaist con­cept of the Simultaneous Poem’ — enti­tled Words to the blind’, and per­form it in a fero­cious battle of improv, noise and poetry.

Simultaneous poem is a Dadaist con­cept — a sit­u­a­tion where poems are recited simul­ta­ne­ously onstage in dif­fer­ent lan­guages — or as lead­ing Dada artist Hugo Ball says : A con­tra­pun­tal recita­tive in which three or more voices speak, sing, whis­tle, etc., simul­ta­ne­ously in such a way that the result­ing com­bi­na­tions account for the total effect of the work, ele­giac, funny or bizarre.’

Pop Noire is an inde­pen­dent record label based in Paris, founded in 2011 by artists duo Johnny Hostile and Jehnny Beth, and artis­tic direc­tor Antoine Carlier with the desire to develop bespoke projects.
It all started in London with a punk and DIY phi­los­o­phy as the duo John & Jehn was com­pos­ing and record­ing in the base­ment of their home, while the back room was trans­formed into a makeshift office, stocked to the brim with records.

Pop Noire quickly got noticed and estab­lished its uncom­pro­mis­ing rep­u­ta­tion on an inter­na­tional scale with Lescop’s lunar and cap­ti­vat­ing La Forêt’ or Savages’ burn­ing Shut up’.
The projects mainly build around Johnny Hostile and Jehnny Beth, but the house also opens to other artists as the New-Zealand duo A Dead Forest Index.
In 2017, Pop Noire joined forces with pro­duc­tion com­pany Walter Films founder, Xavier Arias. The label explores new aes­thet­ics such as elec­tronic and exper­i­men­tal music, with the sig­na­ture of French young com­poser Cirrial and the release of Johnny Hostile’s ambi­ent debut album.

Pop Noire is an artists’ house which pro­duces and devel­ops projects in line with its iden­tity: inde­pen­dent, rad­i­cal and exploratory.
