Quelques tranches de temps (Version B)
Flute, Alto Saxophone and Clarinet Duration 13’
The piece is inspired by a 360° photo that I saw in 2000. At that time, the photographer had to put cameras around the subject and take many pictures at the same time: but it was never exactly together. Each of the photos represented a "slice of time", hence the title "Few time slices". And together, these photos give the impression of something suspended in time. The stage layout of the musicians at the beginning is a metaphor for these photos. After, I explored the time of a more linear or rhythmic material.
