The communicational perspective in the study of Aux armes et cetera, Serge Gainsbourg’s first reggae album, allows us to understand its poetic, poetic and political dimensions. As an aesthetic device participating in a communication process, this opus is analyzed throughout its conditions of creation (Gainsbourg as a musical painter), aesthetics (dub poetry “à la française”) and of reception (his first real commercial success ; the cultural inscription of his work and the tensions generated by it; the rise of a new media character). Serge Gainsbourg’s poetics of communication finally led to the «storytelling» of a new Francophone musical culture.
