Cahiers Trouvés is inspired by the Cahiers du Cinema and the French Nouvelle Vague films of the 1950s/1960s. The guitarist adds his own splash of colour to the score which allows to customise and adapt it to the set-up of pedals and sounds he wants to use. The score consists of a central line of pitches running down the 'Champs Elysées' framed by 'buildings' of musical structures, all of which are references to films by Godard, Truffaut and Malle amongst others. During his stroll up and down the avenue, which may take between 9 and 23 minutes, the player can also choose to 'cross the road' by using a so-called 'ascenseur'.
