In order to reconstruct his sound installations live, Jacques invites his audiences to bring everyday objects (plastic cups and keys but not shoes or sandwiches) to his shows to create the noise from which he improvises by recording and buckling live sounds.

Sometimes Jacques offers an intimate performance during which he invites his audience, equipped with headphones, to a concentrated listen of his music. Other times, Jacques delivers live music for overexcited warehouses such as the recent Dour and Sonar festivals in 2016. Today, Jacques comes back from a future in which he has made plenty of contacts. He opens up the field of possibilities by singing his newly released title from last June, Dans la Radio
