This project refers to information networks and the drift of over-communication that characterizes contemporary society. The electronic part is essentially made up of artificial voices which give orders and organize the actions on stage. Human beings (here the 2 musicians) find themselves caught in authoritarian processes, victims of a technological escalation where men and machines merge.
Composed for the Geneva International Competition, this work also questions in depth the role of the percussionist: in a long introduction, he is confronted with himself having only his hands and his body for instrument and following orders given by the virtual. The development of gesture writing evokes a generalized virtualization of the world where the reality seems to dissolve in a digital and increasingly frightening environment.
