Arles 2012 – Off: Guillaume Chamahian

“They say that music music soothes the soul.” Guillaume Chamahian finishes his text on the series Bosnia. This is probably a nod to a past life. “I stopped school rather young. When I was 18 someone gave me a camera. I started taking pictures and did a little writing and painting. I enrolled in the Beaux-Arts de Marseille but found it too academic. I stayed for six months and left for London. In 1995, I discovered the underground, techno and Spiral Tribe, and spent two years spinning records. In 1997 I came back to France. The ‘free parties’ were in full swing, and I hung out in Marseille with Metek, Okupe and the Sound Conspiracy. I’m what they call a traveler. I spent four years on the road with my mobile soundsystem. Then they passed the ‘Mariani Amendment’. At the end of one party, the police seized three of our buses, 20 kilos of sound equipment and all our stuff. We never saw it again.”
