Even his air is lunar. It’s a studio buried, very deep, in the bowels of a Swiss city, the walls reflect. Erik Truffaz has put on a white shirt that creases instantly, his glasses dangling from a cord. There is, facing him, in an isolated cabin, a microphone older than him – he blows a trumpet older than himself. Everything breathes patina. The weather. Cunning. Then he starts to sing. A crooked child’s song. A soul song rendered. The Truffaz trumpet is linked to underwater worlds, unfrequented peaks, prayers and nursery rhymes. He pretends nothing. He does not play the poet. But in this piece, “Lune Rouge”, he extracts the sound of the breath. Red is the moon. To see a blood moon, several factors must come together. At the time of a total eclipse, the moon, the earth and the sun must be in axis. The moon must be at its perigee – that it is brushing our orbit. It is a play of mineral lights, of promised collisions, of happy accidents. The red moon stems from perfect alignment.
