« Passeur d’eau »

Le Chant du bollard (nouvelle version 2018)
A bollard is a vertical sliding system to which boats tie up in locks ; it emits discontinuous random sounds during the whole time the water is falling in the lock, and there are about a dozen that “sing” in this way in this gigantic sonorous cathedral.  This, therefore, is water heard from a boat passing through one of the immense locks on the Rhône, where everything is amplified and takes on a grandiose fullness. 

La cicatrice d’Ulysse (2006)
This title, borrowed from Erich Auerbach, German writer and critic deceased in 1957, immediately sets the scene on a plane where realism is depicted in the aesthetics of Western music. Electro-acoustic music has the ability, using “concrete” sounds (with all the ambiguity implied by the word), of giving us an immediate sensation of reality, which we can all situate in relation to our references and private objects of reference; these are the profound notions of sublimitas and humilitas, which merge and unite in musical expression.

Dans les jardins de Cybèle (2013)
A walk, on a summer’s day, in the late afternoon, through the remains of a Gallo-Roman town, the gardens of Cybele … diffuse impressions, a place both sacred and a sanctuary … but also the aura of the nearby town. A special place, allegory of the spiritual and of materialism, duality between spirit and motion.

Ellipsis (2005)
Ellipse is a scientific word and ellipsis, the literary word, each with its own special meaning. Ellipse is used in geometry, astronomy and colorimetry, and ellipsis is a term used in literature, poetry and rhetoric; the word itself is a metaphor; in another of its singularities, in geometry, it is a fixed and finite shape.
