Programme Note:
As in art, so in travels: in the past as in the
present, artists have tried to be travellers in other
ethnic realities, to grasp distant worlds and their
exoticism, and to make them serve as sources of inspiration.
Médiator ( ••• pincer la musigue aujourd'hui ••• ) is
among other things, a musical "travel book", the testimony of an admiration for the musics of the Far
East, which can be found in other works of mine.
Just as the plectrum mediates between the hand
and the string, Médiator is a friendly attempt at
communication between musical instruments of our
tradition and certain sounds and gestures of east
Asian musics.
