BadFrench is a new music project by Kiki Moorse, former member of Chicks on Speed, and Andreas Reihse, member of the Düsseldorf band Kreidler. The duo's music is electronic, inspired by French chanson, Kiki invents herself as a D.I.Y.-diseuse. The work of BadFrench is characterized by a commitment to style, but also by a certain melancholy. The duo's first single, "My Parisian Friend", will appear in September 2008, including remixes by Jason Forrest and Toffeetronic.

At the Institut Kiki and Andreas will introduce the project, talk about their concept and give a small concert. They will also introduce their first video (directed by Elsa Okazaki).
