Point de fuite, for female voices (10 voices) (2003)

 

Poem by Sarah Kéryna

 

 

My meeting with Sarah was at the Biennial of Young Artists in Marseille. I was seduced from the first listen by his poetry. At that time, in 2002, I wanted to write for the voice and especially for women’s choir. I naturally addressed myself to Sarah, who introduced me to several of these texts. I was very attracted to writing Point de fuite. I loved this very original poetry. I loved its musicality, its puns, its rhythm and also the images and contrasts that emanated from them. Punches like « Choc et saccade » amused me a lot.

In writing the music, I wanted to translate Sarah’s poem, the colors, the images, the rhythm and repetition games, the landscapes that pass in front of our eyes.
