Hi, my name is jean mahy, alias jeannot la prose...
Music started for me a long time ago, i started at the age of 12 years playing guitare, jimi hendricks was for me my saint, i triyed to play again and again him solo with my fake gibson lespaul witch i bye second hand 50 euro.this is how it began, playing and playing blues guitare with a compilations of old blues's jimi hendricks songs, he was my teacher... I had nothing to record, and my familly was my first public.I also started playing with friends in the 90's covers of groups like radiohead,portishead nirvana of course,pearl jam etc...All these guitarists were for me the best teachers, listening, trying to play it, make it sound like the original, make me feel like the original!!!???? watever, it was decided, i want to play music all my life!!!!!At the age of 18, i decided to begin highschool in industrial engineering, music is one thing, but my mum said you a have to get a degree to find a job, and after you can play what ever you want!!!!So, i did it, i was bachelor in engineering. But i had this secret dream that one day, i will play music, maybe not earning money with it, but doing what i love to do.So after a few years working, i had money enough to bye, litlle by litlle, a few instrument, groovebox, guitares, analogue synth, etc. My scientist background helped me to have critical view of my own work, i often analyse the sound, rework it, like a scientist do into his laboratory...Hiphop ,triphop, lounge, electronics ...these are the main style i used to play...Sometimes there is no need for words, to create the ambiant, the context, sometimes i write lyrics.THe ambiant, i think, is in perfect correlation with what i live, or maybe what we live, complicated life, economical crisis, boring mass media, depressive, etc and someting positive grew from this, developping a negative into a positive picture. with respect for you, jeannot la prose
