Pipornithology

Passionate about ornithology, Christophe Chassol is a rare bird in French pop. A genuine composer/observer, he takes inspiration from the sounds of the world around him for musical motifs on which he composes an original, unclassifiable soundtrack, where pop, jazz and classical music come together. He calls this unusual method Ultrascore. Having released four albums acclaimed by public and critics alike (Nola chérie, Indiamore, Big Sun and Ludi), Christophe Chassol is today a key figure in the contemporary music scene. For the exhibition The Origins of the World,pop artist Chassol is offering two special performances in which, drawing on his archives and works, he unveils on stage a selection of musical compositions and documentary works resulting from his observation of birds and nature.

Je t'aime… moi non plus : France – Angleterre in pop music

For the Aubrey Beardsley exhibition, Yan Wagner and Uele Lamore offer you a musical journey on each side of the Channel to encounter the best of Franco-British pop. The Musée d'Orsay puts England and pop music in the spotlight, bringing out the powerful and sometimes paradoxical link that has united the United Kingdom and France up to the present day.

From Serge Gainsbourg and his legendary Je t'aime… moi non plus, recorded with Jane Birkin in London in 1969 and banned by the BBC, to David Bowie, whose albums Pin Ups (1973) and Low (1977) were recorded at the Château d'Hérouville (Val d'Oise), the singer, composer and director Yan Wagner has worked with the conductor and arranger Uele Lamore to present, on stage with a quartet, synthetic and acoustic, intimate and timeless versions of these songs that have become classics of the popular repertoire.
