  Work Details  
  La Creation Du Monde (1982-1984), a phantasmagoric mythological suite of electronic collage that evokes an hyper-kinetic version of Karlheinz Stockhausen. The extreme rarefaction of Moins LInfini, evoking microsounds of quantum lattices, the terrible storms of Instant 0, the contrasting android and organic flows of Premieres Forces, evoking the emergence of form out of chaos, establish a form of art which is interior as much as exterior. Lumiere is a catastrophic composition that creates a highly dynamic soundscape by employing a broad spectrum of timbres. Cellules mimicks the first moves by the first living things, and Polyphonie evokes the way they multiplied and become frantic communities: suddenly the world is filled with angst. The crescendo of tension leads to Expression 2, where the confusing concert of voices self-implodes. The whole symphony stands as a powerful statement about the emotional power of musique concrete, equal if not superior to the means of the symphonic orchestra.
