Programme notes

Studio de nuit

Here we surprise the acousmotrope (by analogy with the heliotrope, that which turns toward hearing), engaged in his rituals and his creations, in a half-real, half-dreamed moment of nocturnal composition for Figures de la nuit / Faces of the Night, a work for radio commissioned by David Olds for the program Transfigured Night, on CKLN-FM in Toronto.

Along with the voice of the artist, we hear (in order of vocal appearance) those of Laurie Radford, Pierre Daboval, Justice Olsson, Marie Pelletier, Jean-François Denis, and Pierre Louet.
