Waiting for the Metro in Paris be a lot more pleasant nowadays, thanks to a project orchestrated by transit officials.
As an official reports, it brings a whole new concept to the term "underground music."
It be rush hour in the Paris underground, but these days down here there are good reasons to slow down a little when commuting is more than just getting from A to B, when the transit be too rapid.
Increasingly, the underground tunnels Parisians know as the Metro echo with music worth being late for. That wasn't, and even today, isn't always the case. There's never a shortage of those risking starvation by attempting to sing for their supper, and there's always someone to appreciate an artist playing.
In the past, without much success, authorities periodically tried to eject the musicians who inflict themselves on the travelling public. But with their numbers continually growing, the situation seemed to be getting out of hand.
Transit officials came to the conclusion that if they not beat the musicians at their game, perhaps they join them, or at least they organize it a little better. So they set up auditions to select the 300-or-so performers who become the official underground musicians of Paris.
And it is now an ongoing process. Every six months, all the officially sanctioned musicians, minus those who have found real work and plus those looking for a underground gig, appear at a Metro audition.
Andy, a one-time guitar player himself, video tapes them all for approval by a music committee. "We don't pretend to select music virtuosos," Andy says. "We just put ourselves in the shoes of the riders. We want good quality music, not too aggressive, and as diversified as possible."
Diversification has never been a problem in Paris. A city which, as a current exhibition on street musicians plainly illustrates, has more than two centuries of encouraging the artists who work its boulevard.
For those selected to be the Metro's officially sanctioned performers, there's a badge which ensures they work uninterrupted by transit authority police, and which often guarantees as well a good well travelled spot in a busy metro station, which some musicians, when the mood of the travelling public is right, mean as much as 600 euros a day in income.
Of course, that doesn't happen every day to everyone. But many down here are not looking for a fortune.
Andy said that "the people who play here play because, first of all, they love music and it keep you in shape and give you some pocket money".
After a year in operation, Metro authorities believe their official musicians have raised the quality of underground performances and the mood of the travelling public, and prove that there's more than one way an underground move people.
