Patrick Sadler Biographie

The musician

You can watch some documentaries of his exhibitions. But Patrick Sadler is also a musician, as you can see in the videos below.
Some videos of his exhibitions contain musical accompaniments, which he recorded in his personal studio. Others are music videos showing live performances with other musician friends.

Driving Southwest

“Driving Southwest” is a time lapse video about the painting of a car hood by the Luxembourgish painter Patrick Sadler.

Driving makes you want to travel and move through the countryside. Hence the chosen motif of "Lëtscheft" and "Zolwerknapp", which can be seen from afar when traveling to the south-west of Luxembourg.

The soundtrack is a musical improvisation that was recorded in one take in 1998 and fits in with the theme, the freedom of driving, to the artwork.

Nobody knows my trouble

This song was recorded during a life performance at the Café "Au Gutenberg" in Strasburg in 1986.

In only a few days 4 musicians had come together under the name “Blue(s)Print” namely Patrick Sadler (vocals, guitar), Jeannot Thomé (guitar), Stéphane (Bass), Bijan (Drums).

The lyrics from the song called "Nobody knows my trouble" were written by Jeannot Thomé. The song was composed and arranged by Jeannot Thomé and Patrick Sadler.

The graphic animations were created by Anna Sadler and Lucienne Deviscour.

Let it be

“Let it be” is an extract from a DVD entitled Classic Rock that you can buy at the “Harmonie d'Ehlerange” shop.

Patrick Sadler plays guitar with the Rock Band “Diario” (Andrea Galetti, Nico Pantaleoni and Fabio Geronzi), the Harmonie d'Ehlerange under the direction of Marco Turci and the presidency of Jean-Jacques Rieff, the choirs "Cercle vocal Belval-Metzerlach" and "Chorale Ste Cécile Strassen" under the direction of Jean Wagner.

Les feux de l'usine

Julien Arpetti and Patrick Sadler got together on stage to perform a personalised version of "les feux de l'usine". This recording was made by a camera placed on the table by Patrick Sadler before going on stage.

This special version of “les feux de l’usine” was improvised on two consecutive evenings as part of a show entitled "Vive la France" directed by Marco Turci and presided over by Jean-Jacques Rieff in the Kulturschapp in Ehlerange in Luxembourg in 2014.

Lieder mal nicht Bieder

This video recording from 1982 was taken by Paul Thiltges with a portable VHS camera.

The song, improvised by the musicians, was created as part of a series of performances entitled "Lieder mal nicht Bieder" in the festival hall of the Lycée Hubert Clement Esch (LHCE) in Esch/Alzette in Luxembourg.

The musicians were Jeannot Sanavia, Mario Saracini, Rita Bohler, Vivianne Kaufmann, Fernand Schroeder, Claudine Bimmermann, Claude Waringo und Patrick Sadler. Lighting Engineering Philippe Bozetti. Sound Engineering Christian Mille.

Rock Plastique 1986

"Rock Plastique" (1987) is a videogram on the electronic rendering of personal graphic and pictorial works mounted on own musical creation.

This video clip was produced in collaboration with Nicolas Braunn for the graphic and video part, as well as with Christian Mille for the musical part. I would like to say a big thank you to the models without whom the clip would not be what it is.

I must also express my deep gratitude to the positive energy that was transferred to me by Dominique Avron (1948-2009) to carry out this project.

The Painting Paradigma

This experimental short movie brings up the vision of a novel concept, "The Painting Paradigma", in which an artificial intelligence is painting the painter, a natural intelligence, which is creating the art in the first place.

4517 frames had to be individually processed with 85823 control points that had to be adjusted, so that the A.I. could create the "mask" for reality.

I would like to thank Lucienne Deviscour for the help with the A.I. and "Tinlé" for assisting in editing.

The music track was improvised and recorded by myself.

Many thanks to Jessica David, Christiane Sunnen and Roger Roth for the exhibition and the acquisition of the painting.
