I hear the society of Mankind and Nature screaming their pains and limits. L’hubris du monde is the revolted expression of that current state of things.

The human world and the planet have been sacked by our excesses (hubris)
The Planet, faced with our unquenchable avidity, answers
Mankind is quick to forget
Then what?
One step forward
Two steps back
Will one more step forward be still possible?

Part one of a trilogy composed during the pandemic, this trilogy holding a mirror to it.

[English translation: François Couture, vi-21]


L’hubris du monde [The World’s Hubris] was realized in February 2019 at Musiques & Recherches’s Métamorphoses d’Orphée studio in Ohain (Belgium) and was premiered on April 24, 2019 as part of the concert ÉlectroBelge presented at Espace Senghor in Brussels (Belgium).
