With their upturned collars, pointed shoes and Gallic diffidence, they seem perfectly at home alongside the 20-year-old Moog sythesisers, mahogany mixing desks and cherrywood-veneer sound-proofing. They barely utter a word, offering only weak smiles and mildly perceptible nods. For a space designed to create noise, this could be one of the quietest, most thoughtful places in Paris.
