TOX

for ondes martenot and piano (2017)

From my experience as cellist and my interest for electroacoustic composition, it is been a pleasure for me to accept the commission to write a piece fro ondes martenot and piano for the Festical Messaien. This piece explores the expressive and musical qualities of this wonderful instrument.

The title of this piece comes form "tox", from the ancient Greek "toxikon" that means "poison used on the arrows", and "toxon" that means bow. This piece wants to express an acoustic and energetic process between these two instruments with so different timbre.

The expressivity of the ondes, based on a continuum of frequences that makes it similar to the human voice is confronted to the rhythmical and percussive violence of the piano.

Both instruments interact in a crossed toxic relationship, mixing their sonic characters one into the other.

EON

for large ensemble (2012)

The universe exists in between two singular points: one is the maximum concentration and the lack of time and space, the other one is the maximum dilution and a terminal unfolded time. An aeon is the lapse of time between these two moments and therefore the overall duration of the universe. Whether it unfolds and refolds again is a theoretical supposition.

Æon is an invitation to follow this voyage of creation and annihilation in a human size, a representation of the forces in movement ordering space and form whose origin and end are the same singular point. The gestures are linked one to another as part of a continuous evolution and differentiation. The path evolves like on the surface of the Moebius strip, once the journey ends by going through the limits of the strip it finishes at the same starting point but in an opposite space. There are never two identical moments after a cycle, though our rationality invites our perception to think we are back to the same situation.
