Une Autre Nuit (2015) for alto saxophone & live-computer

Une Autre Nuit is the conclusive piece of the nocturnal cycle called the Notes Sur La Nuit, and achieves the development of the four previous episodes. As the title may tell, the substance of the piece no longer refers to the darkness of the night but rather shows its transfiguration. Now it deals more with the gradual rising of light and visibility. The one of a possible dawn time, when the night (dreamt, or not ...) is rendered through its endurance. In that sense, it is the exit in itself that allows the experience and its recall, now invoked in our daytime dreams.

The piece was premiered by Joshua Hyde on June 10-2015, Villa Douce, Reims (Fr)
