Franck Ducasse (Kattzyre)'s portrait

Franck lent himself to the game of portraits, here are some answers to our questions ...

RdvROCK
Since when do you evolve in music?

Franck :
I started music over forty years ago! My earliest memories are linked to music: I had my very first instrument at the age of 4, an organ on which I played everything I heard on the radio. I have never stopped since, music is part of my life.

RdvROCK
What are your musical influences?

Franck :
At first, involuntary influences: the radio, daily life, popular dances. Then with the study of music it widened to classical music, jazz, all forms of rock. I feel as close to a Steven Wilson as to a Mile Davis or a Jimi Hendrix.

RdvROCK
Have you already recorded an album or an EP?

Franck :
The closest thing to an album is a tape recorded 25 years ago with Stormy Mondays!
More recently, we recorded a track with The Katts. We also worked with The Midinettes on a first album and now a second one without being able to record them, for different reasons.
It's very difficult, because you have to find the right people, the right timing, a common motivation and a big budget.

RdvROCK
Which song fits you best?

Franck :
Probably "I'm ready", with The Midinettes. All my songs are related to my life in some way, and this one is a kind of exorcism.

RdvROCK
Which artist would you like to share the stage with?

Franck :
I would love to play with Daran, even if I would never dare to sing with him!

RdvROCK
What are your other passions or interests besides music?

Franck :
I have a lot of them! I design effect pedals for guitar and bass in parallel to my activities, through FrK AudioElectronics. I like art in general, sports, gastronomy, I am a real epicurean!

RdvROCK
If you could only keep 3 albums among all the ones you own, which ones would you keep?

Franck :
Oh my! What a difficult question!
Miles Smiles, by Miles Davis
Document, by R.E.M
Tres hombres, by ZZ Top
I can really only keep three?

RdvROCK
What is the unmentionable song you sing in your shower?

Franck :
Heroes, by Bowie...

RdvROCK
Define, in 3 words, what music means to you

Franck :
Life, the universe, the rest.
