To Heather Roche

Four meditations on our metastable states

Happiness is so fragile, a kind of precarious and improbable balance: a multicolour soap bubble. How can one fully enjoy it despite the vertigo its transience induces? It seems that reflection on impermanence was, and forever will be, at the heart of self-conscience, both for the individual and society. This permanence should soothe me.


La rupture inéluctable [The Ineluctable Rupture] was realized in 2010-11 in the composer’s studio and the studios of the University of Huddersfield (UK) and premiered by Heather Roche on November 3, 2011 during the concert live@CIRMMT: Ébène et métal in Montréal (Québec). The piece was commissioned by Heather Roche, with support from the CCA.
