Abstract

«Et je me demandais si je veillais ou si je dormais, — si c’étaient les pâleurs de la lune ou de Lucifer, — si c’était minuit ou le point du jour!»

«Mais bientôt mon oreille n’interrogea plus qu’un silence profond.» — Aloÿsius Bertrand, Gaspard de la nuit: fantaisies à la manière de Rembrandt et de Callot (1842)

So much beauty surrounds us, when we give it time! Often, it emerges from a simple meeting and goes unnoticed. At a second glance, it yields its deeper nature, replete with subtleties and richness. Such nuances appear to us when we allow ourselves to contemplate the moon!

This is a chamber mixed-music piece for saxophone quartet (SATB) and real-time electronics, commissioned and premiered by Quasar.
