Quatre poèmes

“Art is not about the shock of something new. It’s about arranging the old in such a way that you see it afresh.”

Sarah Kane, in a letter to Graham Saunders, February 13, 1998

This album has more to do with a volume of poetry than with a novel. Admittedly, the pieces share images and themes, both musical and referential, but each offers its own universe and story… hence the long pauses between each piece, to let the substance resurge as an echo in the silence that follows listening.

Thus, my titles, as well as my programme notes, are for me invitations, impressions, allusions, to an indescribable feeling, that music expresses more fully, more essential in its immediate multiplicity: tangible, like an incantation.



Thanks: to Jean-François and Dominique, for their trust and patience; to Stephen and Alex, for the images and the music; and obviously to Claudine, Maxime, and Édouard.
