You play the invisible spectator always through grainy footage as a touring musician ambles unsolicited into a random cafe or through a narrow Parisian street. No one knows where their playing might take them — and therein lies the appeal. Filmmaker Vincent Moon found himself inspired after watching a documentary on English guitarist Fred Frith and sought to recreate a similar aesthetic with bands that were touring in Paris. The basic premise is simple enough on paper. Take an indie musician and have them play a couple of their favorite songs while walking around Paris with as little equipment as possible.
We're breaking promises we thought we could keep We trigger avalanches unknowingly We travel in and out, we take off, we land We live in airports like we don't have a plan This is a journey and we call it home And when it stops we're feeling miserable, well. We're breaking promises we thought we could keep We trigger hurricanes unwillingly It's our fault When it all Breaks into everyone's lives But are we really to blame? It's like a pain in the chest Despair, hangover and ecstasy So many people around We disappoint and let down And though we're trying our best Despair, hangover and ecstasy Despair, hangover and ecstasy. We're breaking promises we thought we could keep We trigger avalanches unknowingly, oh We're not so different from convicts on the run Freedom could kill us, but we'd rather go on This is a journey and we wanna go far They say we're selfish but this plane is on fire. We're breaking promises we wanted to keep We trigger hurricanes unwillingly It's our fault When it all Breaks into everyone's lives Still we would do it again.

They have become a standard stop for bands and artists of all styles and status that tour through the French capital. On the other side was independent filmmaker Vincent Moon, who was looking to do the same but in the other direction. The result was a concept based on minimalist guerilla-style filmmaking that focused on the experience of live music rather than a slickly produced music video. There are no stages, no multiple takes, or tons of money spent. The bands simply walk the streets of Paris which play a part just as important while a small skeleton crew follows them as they perform. The unique and organic clips that resulted gained a reputation and fans on both sides of the Atlantic.
