Programme Note:
Infrared is the second part of a diptych, the first part being Red Thread, for saxophone quartet. In the latter, a series of poetic images based on more or less imaginary shades of the color red motivated the emergence of musical ideas either in clear, bold strokes that develop into musical gestures I call ‘performative figures’, or musical ideas that are inner and seamless in nature, closer to texture. Infrared offers a reinterpretation of these poetic snapshots and tries to grasp underlying aspects that are 'invisible to the naked eye' of these vibration waves that lie at the boundary of color and heat, of these infrared rays that can only be captured using particular devices. Thus, the shade ‘red-oblivion’, in Red Thread, becomes Erosions in Infrared, and ‘liminal-red’ becomes Thresholds, etc. Infrared is also the title of a novel by Nancy Huston, in which a photographer captures her lovers using infrared, thus revealing some sort of thermal cartography of their life and body. The composition of this work has been made possible with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, and is warmly dedicated to the musicians of ensemble Transmission.
