Life is a becoming of small moments. As in a game of hopscotch, we progress in life by hopping on one foot across stations in various states of mind. It is a path of back-and-forth, of light and darkness. Joy, uncertainty, dreams, fear, absurdity, anguish, cheerfulness alternate in our becoming to build the spider’s web that makes us be. Marelle ou Les instants de la vie [Hopscotch, or The Moments of Life] is an autobiographical electroacoustic suite.
[English translation: François Couture, iii-19]
