Commissioned by Festival Musiques Démesurées, Série Rouge is based on the heart as an organ, a sound material, engine of the human machine, bringing the red flows pf blood. The musical idea, in particular the material for the electronic part as well as the rhythmic dimension, leans on this « elementary molecule » which constitutes the heart rate.

But like all the other works constituting this cycle, a semantic or pseudo-narrative dimension interfere in the project. Blood, coming out from corpses, spreading from cattle’s neck in the slaughterhouses in Strike by Eisenstein, paving the stage in Je suis Sang by the choreographer Jan Fabre, or surging and covering the ground, nightmare vision in Stanley Kubrik’s Shining… Many different images, energies, memories which draw the lines of a path going from a relative stability to a chaotic, violent and archaic state.
