April 15, 2019 AD: Notre-Dame de Paris burns, its century-old frame falls to ashes before the eyes and dumbfounded smartphones of the whole world. And Thomas Guillaud-Bataille wonders about his Christian roots. Then begins a sound log where Notre-Dame in flames, her daughter, her mother, Michelangelo’s Pieta, the apostle Thomas, her son, her father, Jean-Jacques Goldman, Pasolini, a fake monk and a true priest.
Through the account of a few episodes of his life, Thomas Guillaud-Bataille questions his ambiguous relationship to Christianity and the idea of transcendence. He indulges in confessions: the confessions of a paradoxical atheist, who loves the Bible, churches and blasphemy. He also imagines God, he fantasizes about him, he asks himself radio questions about him: What does his voice sound like? Does God hear us? Did God create the sounds of the world? And if yes, how ? If God existed, wouldn’t he be the craziest of sound creators, capable of mixing all the sounds in the world live? And what is the brand of his editing software, to God?
