I knew I had a brother
Director Arno Bitschy takes us on a journey in the footsteps of Jack Hirschman. The old American poet died suddenly in the shadows. On the other side of the Atlantic, Schvédranne composes music to his poems. Alone in the face of his disappearance, the musician goes in search of him. In the rubble of the American dream appear shadows, ghosts, men and women who, at random encounters, read us one of Jack's poems and tell their stories. Through their voices, Jack Hirschman lives on. In this musical road trip from beyond the grave, a poet, a people, a country takes shape. In this journey, the musician Schvédranne is a shadow, a guide. The melody born from his guitar awakens the old poet and summons his presence. Jack's voice emerges from these desert spaces, dark and strong. A discussion from beyond the grave takes place between poem and music. After a shooting in 2023, the documentary should be released by the end of 2024.
In an America more divided than ever, Detroit, a ghost town, offers the dark side of the American dream. In one of the many abandoned houses lives an old woman, Jazz. She sings old Billie Holiday songs, sad love stories, fallen destinies, heartbreaking passions. On her porch, she watches time pass, far from the chaos that shakes her country. Her ritual is immutable, every Thursday she meets her friends in a jazz club and sings, her broken voice shining. A forgotten destiny, finally brought to light thanks to Arno Bitschy , made on the sidelines of the World Wide Effects concept during the screening of Resilience in 2016 in Detroit.
A triple DVD/CD, a colorful testimony of the Jarring Effects epic in 2003, the pivotal year of ten years of audio-activism. Two DVDs for 200 mn of cascading interactions between images and sounds! The 1st DVD (140 mn) is composed of a presentation of the Jarring Effects team (26 mn), a document on the French dub scene (Improvisators Dub, Zenzile, Burning Heads, Lab°, Brain Damage), reports on all the artists of the label and bonuses. The second DVD is the live compilation in multichannel 5.1 (one hour) of the anniversary party of the label at the Transbordeur (09/05/2003), audio only with original video illustrations for each track.
WORLD WIDE EFFECTS
A musical project based on the production of a creation between local and French artists which gives rise to an album, a documentary portrait, and a French tour.
This collection of documentaries and albums in touch with urbanity, began in a South African port at the Cape of Good Hope in 2013 (Mother City Blues) and sailed to Detroit, "Motor City" in 2015 (Resilience), the city of the automobile industry that allowed America to invent the road trip and soul music. It was therefore logical that it should make a stopover in New Orleans, "NOLA", on the other side of the American dream (Call & Response). World Wide Effects is a project initiated by the independent music company Jarring Effects, specialized in non-conformist music since 1995.
