Contrastances

Micheline Coulombe Saint-Marcoux

Programme notes

Developed from a limited amount of material, this study juxtaposes moments whose contrasting effects are produced through different sound treatments. Each moment brings forward its own sound characteristics, and this results in a constant play of opposites.

[English translation: Andra McCartney]
