This “implacable” three minutes is a pointillism of variegated shades, of sinuous melodic contours accompanied by a nervous hiccough in the low register. An ephemeral landscape punctuated by fragile and unpredictable arabesques, anxious about their existence before an inevitable end.

Stéphane Roy [xi-90]

Résonances d’arabesques was realized with the Syter digital interactive system at the GRM and was constructed at the Studio Ondes (Montréal, Québec). This piece was realized with the assistance of the ministère des Affaires culturelles du Québec.
