Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg in  Godard's "À Bout De Souffle"

This was actually the original intention when we did a track for the previous Jean-Luc Godard themed compilation 9 months earlier, so we still had all the samples we'd gathered for it and not used at the time, mostly drawn from his 1960 crime drama / true romance, À Bout De Souffle, though there are a few bits from Weekend as well. We wanted to put this piece together in a style that complimented Godard's own work, whilst keeping within the general framework of musique concrète, so cut ups were the perfect compromise, centred around Jean Seberg's cries of New York Herald Tribune! The one new element was the idea of framing it all with a constantly running cine projector, which I think works rather well. For the graphic, I found a photo of me taken on holiday in Tenerife in 1998, cigarette hanging from my mouth a-la Belmondo (fortunate find, I quit the following year and have never smoked since), so converted it to black and white and repeated it as if in roll of film, then placed it alongside our mock up of the paper. Et voila, profiter beacoup!
