"Lovely, gorgeous, simple yet complex johnny_ripper aka Jean (from Lille, France) cuts a chord & tugs on heart strings with his music."

"I'm not really here. I have an excellent wifi connection with the dream world. I live under a Pink Moon. I often go through the looking glass and bring back what I found there. I also like to create movies in my head. Or have adventures with my pet tiger. I've never used a comb in my life and I'm scared of everything. I have an unhealthy obsession with backmasking. Unprofessional at best, i don’t deal with instruction or practice well, slightly too impatient when it comes to creation, i have a somewhat natural affinity for melody, despite an absence of musical education. I'm not an instrumentalist, I can't play the piano, I just create melodies and see how much I can build from them. Unwilling to conform to conventional genres, my music as a whole can only be described as "experimental", i don't believe in categorizing my music. Slightly too repetitive sometimes, therefore my tracks remain short. I like to believe my inspiration has no limits. I share a love/hate relationship with my songs, most of them are “beautiful accidents”, meaning nothing was planned, no clear agenda, no proper ideas. I enjoy simplicity and prefer using "less" than "more" in my songs."
