Marc De Dieux is a man living a life full of surprises. As a massage therapist he works in Palermo area. To try his treatments go and visit massaggioebenessere.com to discover more.
Marc also play guitars and bass all alone or with bands such as 15-18, Two Popes, Istituto No, Full Metal Racket, Cosmic Eggs, Sbarazzo Magazzini Box. Some music from its unprepared guitars can be listened here at the music page. With the bands Istituto No and 15-18 you might listen him in many episodes of The Watt From Pedro Show, Mike Watt’s radio from San Pedro, California. Marc has been interviewed by Marc Ribot too… call it a big “botta di culo”! (read it this same page).
Note: Marc can’t repeat twice the same sequence of chords or notes… probably. He can’t read any written music and he never studied music. In other words he shouldn’t even touch a unprepared guitar! He usually looks for smiles, not other reasons to play music with unprepared guitars.
He doesn’t love to play all alone in a room. Give him a change!
HIGHLY RECOMENDED!! Here a short interview from Marc Ribot to Marc De Dieux
Marc Ribot & Marc De Dieux
Marc Ribot is taking a workshop in Sicily, lesson two. Students are ready to start and some music start. What a surprise for Marc De Dieux, one of the students in the classroom: Marc Ribot is playing Cosmic Eggs CD, where he plays guitar, to the classroom and he smiles.
MR: Hey man, I listened to your CD and I tell you what: great staff, seriously. I have to tell you something about it later… Great staff.
MDD: I need to go and walk a bit before the lesson start Marc, sorry… I think I’ll have a tea.
MR: Very good motifs inside.
MDD: Yes, I think so… Funny and happy.
MR: How did you play it? Did you study it?
MDD: It’s all improvised stuff, played in an afternoon.
MR: Wow, it always sounds good for more than one hour…
MDD: They are two hours exactly.
MR: Two hours… wow. (They bought smiles). How did you play drums on cd?
MDD: there’re no drums on CD.
MR: No drums? Who’s playing now drums?
MDD: …It should be Giacco’s melodica. No, maybe it’s Nino or me scratching on some string in some way… I don’t now sorry.
MR: (watching to the classromm) Tom Waits said that when one now what is exactly playing the music you finished to listen the music.
MR: Well… What kind of bass is playing?
MDD: It’s a very old Halley Sound. Nino loves it more than his Rickenbacker…
MR: Good sound. Good sound. How did you recordered the music?
MDD: We used Nino’s radio tape recorder with an incorpored microphone, you can buy it anywhere at about 15,00 Euro. We putted it to the centre of my dining room and it sounds perfectly…
MR: (smiling) You made real LO-FI, you know? Yes, real Lo-Fi…
