During the 20th edition of the Saguenay Jazz and Blues Festival, I wandered around all the areas where this rhythmic event was taking place. In order to interview them, I accompanied musicians, technicians and festival-goers during the sound tests, rehearsals, clean-up time and shows, both backstage and on-stage. By doing this, I could observe their concentration, their pleasure, their confidence or their doubts and all the trances that submerged them. These are the moments I was looking for : amazingly I was part of the context but they totally forgot about me.
