Christophe Abric, a journalist, was looking for a new way to share music, so he explored how he could capture instances. The result: “Concerts-a-emporter” or Take Away Shows:
Every week, we invite an artist or a band to play in the streets, in a bar, a park, or even in a flat or in an elevator, and we film the whole session. Of course, what makes the beauty of it is all the little incidents, hesitations, and crazy stuff happening unexpectingly. Besides, we do not edit the videos so they look perfectly flawless, instead we keep the raw sound of the surroundings. Our goal is to try and capture instants, film the music just like it happens, without preparation, without tricks. Spontaneity is the keyword.
The result is to the internet streaming world what MTV’s Unplugged was to television, a rare look at musicians and performers stripped of the celebrity aura to celebrate music.
Nothing quite like what’s added when you take away. And that’s that.
