Based on the passage “Let there be light” (Genesis 1:3), samples of thunder, string harmonics, pizzicati, crystal glasses, wind chimes, bowed crotales and vibraphone, are orchestrated to depict the interplay of light colors, reflections, and intensities. Premiered during the 31st Festival Synthèse Bourges 2001.
