For the 80th birthday of my double friend Oscar Wiggli (1927-2016)

Swiss sculptor Oscar Wiggli is a dialogue between strength and delicateness, a contrast between the huge power of the forged work and the lightness of drawings, between iron and sound, between the clamour of the workshop and the quietness of the composition studio, because Oscar Wiggli was also an electroacoustic composer. forte-piano draws inspiration from these dynamic opposites to sketch a portrait of the artist (who died in 2016).

[English translation: François Couture, ix-20]


forte-piano was realized in 2008 at the composer’s studio in Avignon (France) and premiered on September 20, 2008 as part of a concert celebrating the 80th anniversary of Swiss sculptor and electroacoustic music composer Oscar Wiggli at the Town Hall of Saignelégier (Switzerland). The work was revised in December 2010.

To my friend Parmé

This is a short tribute to Bernard Parmegiani, for his 80th birthday, and to his music. In it I have used the first sound of De natura sonorum as its triggering and conclusive event. It is obviously used as a quote and a wink, further confirmed by the pun-like title.

[English translation: François Couture, v-12]


Dénaturé Parmé sons was realized in 2007 at the composer’s studio in Avignon (France) and premiered on October 20, 2007 during the 14th edition of the L’Espace du son festival at Théâtre Marni in Brussels (Belgium).
