1. Siesta Blanca (White Siesta) - 1972 - In Memoriam Astor Piazzolla
For Siesta Blanca I chose excerpts from Astor Piazzolla’s tangos and recorded sounds of an electronic organ. After transformation, these sounds could materialize the extreme sensation of cold and heat.

2. L'Autre ... ou le chant des marécages - 1987
I was deeply impressed with Blaise Cendrars’s paradoxical personality, his terrifying « Double » which strips itself with an naked extreme and sadistic cruelty in his book « Moravagine, It was impossible for me not to record the depth of my feelings in a brutal and wild vocal composition

3. L’autre rive – 2007
Inspired by the Bardo Todol (The tibetan book of death) this piece have been composed with percussions and some electroacoustic sounds."
