"The first meaning of the French word 'figure' is 'the body'. To describe its form in sound, to interpret it. Volumes, surfaces, lines and points studied for themselves. 'Figure' also means the human face. Like the one on the cover of this disc, like the human presence that we find all too absent in this music. Finally, the figure is the element that stands out from the background. The figure is the significant element and the author's signature; in the background we usually find elements that are less personal and more obvious. When I am working on a piece, it is the figure that I look for, the sound or family of sounds that will characterize it in a significant way, and indelibly."

Robert Normandeau. Montréal, May 1999
