Says Monique Jean of her first album, L’adieu au s.o.s.: “The works included on this disc were composed with eyes wide open, in the profound conviction that music is the expression of a sensibility anchored in the reality that makes us up, that determines who we are and that surrounds us.” Monique Jean is a composer working in close symbiosis with dance, video and media installation.
