There are no other stories than the one that wants to come out loud like a child first's cry into the world! No other stories more important than the one we're living!

Music writer, producer, saxophonist, a pianist born in France from Africa Creole (Reunion Island) and Celtic Western parents.

Curious wanderer, performer, and open-minded musician (saxophones, piano, synth, percussions, guitars, flute, composition...) for more than 20 years with projects like Transmusique, Urban Travellers, or the Celebration of Quetzal. Jean-Christophe is opening his story through music, through travels. Mixing organic and electronic instruments.
A step in a different place, with a different perspective a time and space fueled by harmonics, improvisation, and contemplation. A place without bounds, without limit, without borders...
