Mad Hatter in concert at the Trianon, in Paris, on February 7, 2023, meeting an experimental artist

The Lorraine artist, Chapelier Fou, will be at the Trianon in Paris on February 7, 2023 with an ensemble for an acoustic concert. Chance to meet a discreet musician, with stunning secret gardens.

He is fond of Urbex (urban exploration), which he prefers to practice on the pier. He likes walking in unknown places. He adores the contemplation of industrial landscapes, and this is not very surprising. All these places are time capsules. Do they inspire him because of what they tell him or because he likes to be there. Just listen and watch “Amoxicilline”, single from his album “Chapeler Fou Ensemble7e”, published by Here by the way… to get some ideas.

Mad hatter, the little prince of electronica after a career in classical, is also nothing surprising. It is precisely this curiosity, this need to explore parallel universes that makes her brand. The object does not matter, as long as there is sound. On Tuesday, February 7, 2023, he will be in trianon in Paris with an entirely acoustic concert. By his side, friends and musicians.

Playing without electricity motivated me in this then completely apocalyptic period. It was reassuring to think we could play with nothing.

This ensemble of seven musicians was created at the end of the Covid period. It’s a re-arrangement of old songs into a totally acoustic version. Playing without electricity motivated me in this then completely apocalyptic period. It was reassuring to think we could play with nothing. It was also reassuring from a compositional standpoint to think that a song could work without the “sound design” part.

A unique concert would be held in public atMetz Arsenal in April 2021, but due to the pandemic it was played behind closed doors and filmed by art concert. This concert, which would be unique, found itself scheduled for a tour with a date in Trianon on 7 February. We are happy.”

On February 7, 2023, during what he calls a big party, in addition to his band of musicians, there will also be some surprise guests on stage. And since it’s a surprise, we won’t know more.

The Mad Hatter, whose real name is Louis Warynski, was born in Metz, Lorraine. A region where he likes to take advantage of unusual quayside walks. When asked if he has a particular childhood memory, he answers without hesitation, Archie Shepp’s concert in Trinitarians in Metz. He was 9 years old then.

There will be no new album. I’m not into that dynamic right now. I want to work with other people, experiment with other things in music.

2023, a good year ahead for the Mad Hatter who is taking part in an interactive installation titled “Play with Me” with Eric Arnal-Burtschy, choreographer artist. “It’s like a playground with see-saws, but they make music. There were several meetings. We are still working on it. We are looking for a concert version.

There will be no new album. I’m not in that dynamic right now. I want to work with other people, experiment with other things in music. I work in virtual reality for a narrative experience.

The Mad Hatter is in full exploration, as for his other passion, visiting unusual places, to open other doors of his universe.
