COLLAPSED

Collapsed_EnTete.jpg

As it is often the case in my work, this music refers to the state of the world, the shift of consciousness and the annihilation of critical thinking . It is indeed about a form of degeneration that progressively limits our intellectual speculations.

The music here is trying to oppose this process by wrapping itself around an ascending structure made by successive crescendo,  a gradual tension and a rise to power. But the process is not linear : each part is a little longer than the previous one and it seems that a kind of inertia invades the speech like a trap preventing anything to happen.

Beyond the metaphor, my writing is based on simple gestures, repetitions and exchanges argued in  a strong  tempo significant of the intensity I try to convey through the musical act.
