My new piece [to be enveloped by] BLACK (2018-19), written for Ensemble Multilatérale and inspired by the poetic and visual works of Aldo tambellini, will be broadcasted during this week’s Création Mondiale program in Radio France, with Anne Montaron, Françoise Cordey and Soizic Noël.
This piece was specifically written for the ensemble and recorded at the Studios at la Seine Musicale for its broadcast in Radio France. It is a cycle of 5 miniatures of 2′ that will be broadcasted every day this week at 13.55h. The titles of each miniature are the following:
- to BLⒶCK from BLⒶCK (2′)
- BLⒶCK energy burns with fire (2′)
- the coming to be, resonating in the echo (2′)
- from the invisible made visible (2′)
- perforated on a BLⒶCK slate sky (2′)
You can listen to it live by clicking here.
On Saturday, June the 1st, you will also be able to listen to the complete cycle and to an interview by Anne Montaron at 23.30h. You can listen live by clicking here. There will also be iTunes Podcast and RSS Feed available.
Thanks sincerely to the team at Radio France, to the Ensemble Multilatérale, Léo Warinsky, Yann Robin and all the others that made this project happen.
Hugo Warinsky interviewed yours truly at the end of Université D’Altitude International Workshop for Young Composers (Saint-Martin-Vèsubie, France, 2016), so here you can listen to me [trying to] explain the musical ideas behind my Vértigo (2016), which was wonderfully premiered back there by the amazing Ensemble Multilatérale.
Hope you enjoy or, at least, have fun!
I am pleased to share the recording of the premiere of my piece Vértigo (2016), for Bass Flute, Bass Clarinet, Harp, Violin and Violoncello. It comes from the second concert of the Université D’Altitude 2016 — with Yann Robin and Raphaël Cendo as teachers and the Ensemble Multilatérale as visiting ensemble— that took place on July the 9th at the Eglise Notre-Dame de l’Assomption, Saint-Martin-Vèsubie, France.
I must thank all the musicians of the ensemble for their magnificent work during the whole Academy an also for their brilliant performance.

Programme notes for the premiere (French):
“Dans cette pièce, j’ai essayé de créer des séries d’objets sonores hybrides en travaillant sur leurs caractéristiques spectro-morphologiques. L’énergie physique déployée par les interprètes joue un rôle structurant dans cette pièce, créant a la fois un matériau sonore et le discours musical lui-même. Cela contribue à créer une énergie particulière et une atmosphère spéciale, dans laquelle les relations entre le objets sonores tendent à provoquer une sensation de vertige ou de désorientation.”
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
