To know more, we could talk about her insane love for the Doors and Jefferson Airplane, and others, but one only needs to present the composer and multi-instrumentalist Axel Concato, without whom the bewitching sound landscapes of Pi Ja Ma would not have seen the light of day. The melodies that Axel has composed for Pauline’s voice are coloured with an almost innocent freshness. Since he met Pauline in 2015, it is a sort of dialogue, or rather a joke competition that has been established between them.
With a natural complicity and without any polite efforts, magic operates: Axel composes, fiddles around and structures, whilst Pauline sings, laughs and draws with this fertile spontaneity that transforms everything she touches into a naked lunch. Pi Ja Ma is a child who illustrates adult problems and distorts them to the point of giving them a new meaning. There is nothing more psychedelic and profound than a child’s drawing.
