We live in an instantaneous, digitized time.
We look less and less around, believing ourselves to be masters, chained to these instruments that have become an extension of our hand, handcuffs.
Suddenly, a smell comes to us, a freshly cut grass.
Its perfume invades our being. In a fraction of a second, the earth's rotation is reversed, we become that carefree child watching his father mow a Breton lawn, we play with an old magnifying glass at being a detective, we disguise ourselves as a pirate and search for treasures, our family is our landmark, our boulder is our throne from which we observe the horizon.

The smell of cut grass continues to penetrate our every particle. It gave us the total feel of an era, a journey through space-time. It is olfactory memory. The one who can stop time, modulate it.

Nowadays, the place given to the past is crumbling, we no longer think of our stars who have left too early.
Everything is present moment, immediate satisfaction and future ... troubled, uncertain, confined.
Sometimes closing your eyes, feeling childhood, remembering, is the key to balance.
Tanguy, alias Are Morica, delivers his new opus, “Mémoire Olfactive” (Olfactory Memory) whose notes and atmospheres are dedicated to this nostalgia, the one that sometimes makes us smile, sometimes shed a tear.
The one who must accompany us, always.


The Perseids are a swarm of meteors visible from the earth's surface. They take their name from Perseus, son of Zeus. They are poetically called the tears of Saint Laurent. 
On beautiful summer nights, shooting stars dance in the sky for long hours. They pass, illuminate, die.
They remind us of our passage on earth. They invite us to illuminate our lives. 
No one forgets when they stare up in front of a shooting star. 

For his new track "Perseides" Are Morica delivers a clip shot in Brittany, where ends the land. 
A magician with the air of a gypsy pays tribute to the souls who have reached the bay of the dead. 
She dances for a shooting star, never to forget her.
