“Recorded at Jean-Marie Massou’s home in the middle of Bourian forest, in the South of France, Sodorome presents several aspects of the musical experiences of this singular man. Between ballads sung on his knees, over the reverberating sound of a watertank from the back of his house, and extracts from hundreds of hours of audio cassettes recorded on several magnetos, Massou reveals here a part of what occupies and concerns him. An imaginary world of childhood and its carelessness, as much as the impending end of the world and its inhabitants. We discovered Jean-Marie Massou, carved like a Hercules, in the documentary “Le Plein Pays” that Antoine Boutet directed. For nearly four decades, he has been resculpting the territory by digging kilometres of trenches. We wanted to learn about his relationship with the music that always accompanies him. He welcomed us into the organised chaos of his den, where we saw his tapes, bundled with elastic and covered wtih collages or drawings to remind him of its contents. We saw that the magnetos were ready to roll at the edge of the bed, or at the doorstep. Just in case… Jean-Marie Massou selected for Sodorome a small part of his work, allowing humanity to hear the messages he addresses it.”
