Jeff Mills to record in sci-fi novelist Jules Verne’s home
Techno maestro Jeff Mills will be bringing his project Intuitions to France next week.
Set in Amiens, the live recording will take place at the home of science fiction novelist Jules Verne’s next Tuesday and Wednesday.
Set for a special release via Axis Records next year, the aim of Intuitions is to create electronic music inspired by the atmosphere of a place where a great artist did their work.
After recording at the Rembrandt House, Amsterdam in 2015 and at the Tokyo studio of manga artist Osamu Tezuka last year, Mills will settle into Verne’s office who is the author of acclaimed novels such as Journey To The Center Of The Earth and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea.
Although the recording sessions will not be open to the public, a local newspaper has reported that Mills will perform a “cinemix” of the 1902 silent film A Trip To The Moon by Georges Méliès. The showcase is set to take place at Ciné St-Leu, next Wednesday night along with a screening of a collaboration between Mills and Japan’s Dairakudakan Dance Company based on his recent concept album Planets.
Mills received a medal from France’s Order of Arts and Letters earlier in the year.
