Irène Drésel: “I love it when people come to tell me that they met at one of my concerts, that they make love to my music”

A station in Eure-et-Loir. We get into the Twingo. We go through the villages in the middle of wheat and rapeseed fields. We go through Crécy-Couvé and its listed houses. Still a little drive, we arrived. Irène Drésel, who is touring festivals this spring and summer, welcomes us to her home. An authentic farmhouse in which his grandmother lived and where each room has its own identity.

The musician and artist evokes her childhood in the Parisian suburbs between a work-obsessed engineer father and a housewife who was a great lover of classical music, her childhood dream of becoming a radio host, her taste for laughter, singing and dancing, her passion for photography and her admiration for the work of Bettina Rheims, Vanessa Beecroft, Lise Sarfati, Alessandra Sanguinetti or Thomas Ruff, her time at the Beaux-Arts, her years at the reception of Aqua Saint-Paul, a naturist place in Paris, her relationship with the worlds of contemporary art and techno, her César for best film music, a first for a woman, her enthusiasm for the voice of Angèle or the music of Mac DeMarco and her love of neon pink.

She also returns at length to her crush on the film Midsommar by Ari Aster who inspired some songs and the cover of his second album Kinky Dogma released in 2021: “A friend told me that I had to see this film, that it corresponded to me too much. When I saw it, I said to myself: “It’s extraordinary. » It’s a daylight thriller and I love it, there are very few of them. The aesthetic is very ethereal. We find a little of the universe that I have on stage.

For four seasons, journalist and producer Géraldine Sarratia has questioned the construction and intricacies of a personality’s taste. Whether they are creators, artists, cooks or intellectuals, they all call upon their childhood memories, all evoke the social and cultural dimension of the construction of a corpus of tastes, of a set of values.
