Escapade was composed using tiny fragments of sound. At the start of the piece, the individual fragments are not perceived. Instead, they are so densely packed that they (perceptually) fuse into much larger structures; one hears the source recordings, which are largely, but not entirely, orchestral. As the piece progresses, the individual fragments become increasingly prominent; they no longer fuse into larger structures and are subsequently perceived as discrete units or entities. In this respect, Escapade was inspired by pointillistic painting — a technique in which small, distinct points of colour are used to form a larger image.

Escapade was realized in 2010 at the Métamorphoses d’Orphée studio of Musiques & Recherches in Ohain (Belgium). Thanks to Annette Vande Gorne for her hospitality and support.
