Throughout the ages and their various uses, survival tools (rhombus wind instruments, flute-calls, etc.) have become musical instruments. In the context of this work, these vectors of affects co-exist side-by-side with an electro-acoustic system.

 This machine cannibalizes its own sound production while simultaneously thriving on sounds produced by the musicians. 
From this agora spring forth "multitimbral" landscapes whose edges dissolve into microtonal steppes, devoid of human action.

From liminal pulsation to decimal infinity, the physicality of the sound summons an allegory to geology, from the infra thin (l’émoi - volute) to the supra massive (embâcle - doline).

 Drum-Machines consists of subconscious and collective archaic fields
that reach all the way to the noise aberration of the contemporary world. The 21st century begins in its great collapse, the imbalances and the disruptions of the sound masses deployed by organisms in movement (percussionists) compress time and sounds until their paroxysms.

This work is the elaboration of a lengthy sifting approach in which process creates form through a dynamic composition. This process uses accumulation, manipulation and re-arrangement across several generations of sound data. The original intention is modified and transformed.

Drum-Machines is polymorphic in it’s arrangement, suspended on a line of time and actions.

Particles is a mixed media work for two sets of instruments (ensembles) and electronics.
It is based on a video score inspired by a panoramic photograph taken in Camargue, in the winter of 2016.
The idea for the setup and the asymmetrical orchestral performance came to me while I was hiding in the reeds to do some birdwatching. On the water’s surface, I saw the reflection of semi-submerged plants that created geometric shapes and complex movements.
The superimposition of the states of these plants split into two, between the static upper part above the water and its iridescent reflection on the surface, form an interconnected system and present a quantum state in which both are dependent on each other, in that moment.
The transposition of this quantum entanglement to two instrumental ensembles playing the same score creates timbral polarizations, "Klangfarbenmelodie."
The plants that are above the water, along with their slightly modified reflections, are transposed to both ensembles, which simultaneously interpret the shapes musically in terms of tempo, pitch and intensity, in two physically different spaces.
These two ensembles must be equal in terms of size and string section. However the piece remains open, and can therefore be performed by heterogeneous ensembles or groups. As for the audience members, they are encouraged to sit between the two ensembles.
The piece premiered on June 11, 2017 as part of a commission from the Ensemble Phoenix Basel. The first sound recording to accompany the video score was a superimposition of two performances by the same ensemble in an identical space, 24 hours apart.

Austral is a mixed work (electronic and video) for ensemble, originally composed for Laborintus (contemporary ensemble). This creation was previously imagined in its origins to be re-interpreted by other musical aesthetics.
Austral is a pretext, a vector. My main interest is to deal directly with the sounds, music, and ‘noises’ produced by musicians : the specific archetypes of their own training (amateur or professional). This piece calls for an individual memory, as well as a collective memory...
