La trace du souffle

Rémy Carré

  • Year of composition: 1989-96
  • Duration: 9:26

Stereo

From the Bull of Lascaux’s Caves to Joseph Beuys’ Coyote, the breath of the animal remains the sign of life, the sign of a vital force which also brings us to life. La trace du Souffle is a composition where the grain of the digital “sound machine” bears the energy of the breath. Whatever the tool or the instrument that is shaping the sound material, we will always keep in mind this animal presence. Commissioned by GMVL in 1989, adapted for publication in 1996.
