“First duty at daybreak: to be ashamed of oneself.” —Emil Cioran, The New Gods

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” —Margaret Mead

These two quotes might seem contradictory, but together they express my feeling of powerlessness well: everyday, I wonder how to reconcile my happiness and my recognition of it at the expense of the rest of the planet.


Reflets de notre société crépusculaire was realized in 2009 at the Studio 116C of Ina-GRM in Paris (France) and at the composer’s studio and premiered on December 6, 2009 at the Salle Olivier Messiaen, Maison de Radio France (Paris, France). The piece was commissioned by Ina-GRM. For their support, thanks to Christian Zanési, François Bonnet, Philippe Dao, David Fenech, and Nicolas Stephan.

This version was mastered in June 2011 by Dominique Bassal in Montréal.
