Episode Summary

EDIT
ARLT
AIRED:
You receive Vincent Moon’s film, and are asked nicely to write the accompanying text. You say yes, and wonder about the nature of the beast; you watch the film, letting it wash over you hoping that words will come; you close the cover, letting it sleep, and you wait… then the panic begins, slowly, as nothing arrives. Nothing sufficiently real. You ask for help, but you take the help too late, and you begin to despair. ARLT’s songs have been around for so long that it’s not sure that anything new can be said. And so it is: their reality, a reality, can be found as the curtain rises on these images. It was already known that ARLT has two bodies. Vincent Moon’s images are full of the evidence, but it takes seeing them live to truly understand. Noises resembling those of another century, those of Sing Sing, but not exclusively. Cheeks, a beard, fingers, calves. It’s rare to hear a song embodied so physically. Réal : Vincent Moon Tourné à Paris But ARLT is above all something old, shiny with age. These two and their strange songs come less from far away as they do from another era. It’s necessary to enter into their den, in the cavern where these two pass the time sifting through the sediments of more than one life. It’s necessary to discover this timeless era, the era where the Eiffel Tower was little more than a postcard hanging askew on a marked wall, this era where words rolled like ancient rocks before Eloise Decazes reduced them to their simplest expression. A melody without words that manages to say more than a litany could. We’d seen them in the vicinity of other time travelers – Josephine Foster, or Mike ‘Sport’ Murphy, amongst others. We found them in the midst of books, piles of books, pages and pages of words long written, on a paper as yellowed as it would ever be, in an old institution, steps away from centuries-old stones. As it should be. Réal : Vincent Momoreless
