George Zahora, Splendid E-Zine, 1 novembre 1999

Normandeau’s most recent release collects four compositions: Le renard et la rose, Figures de rhétorique, Venture and Ellipse.

Le renard et la rose combines, in largely unrecognizable form, the audio and musical soundtracks from a radio dramatization of The Little Prince; if nothing else, you’ll probably never look at Antoine de Saint-Exupery the same way again. Figures de rhétorique, created for tape and piano, is the most overtly musical piece, while Venture comments on the states of existence via heavily manipulated slices of rock music. Ellipse, which closes the disc, is one half of a sonic dialogue with guitarist Arturo Parra; you get the call, sans response, or vice versa. Of these pieces, Figures de rhétorique is the most conventionally ear-pleasing, while Venture offers the most overtly intriguing set of sounds. All four works are dynamic and stirring, making this an excellent starting point for the empreintes DIGITALes universe.
