(*) Extraits du corps (February- June1989) — 1 h 30′
Extracts of the body
For fifteen musicians, piano solo and tape
«Extracted from 9 scores, from between 1953 and 1985, in an erudite assembly and like a concerto for piano and orchestra in three movements. The sense of this recomposition is that of a composer who tells with his manner a part and one of the aspects of its life: it is like pieces of his body. It is by thinking of that I asked young women to speak in front of a microphone about the parts of their body. This tape, made up like a poem, comes to give a special dimension to this adventure. This cutting was carried out to answer a particular request of Michel Redolfi, Conducter ector of the MANCA, and remains a unique representation.»
