    French Traffic (2003-2005)







    French Traffic was Jonathan & Michael. The concept was to record music and do the thinking later, the idea being that your subconscious actions offer a better picture of yourself then your conscious one. All music by French Traffic was recorded in one take, and then edited later on. From January 2003 to January 2005, French Traffic amassed 7 hours of music, including 6 full length albums, 2 outtakes albums, and 1 album of 99 short fragments.
