And the heart is beating again...
The piece starts with rhythms and finger drummings on the soundboard of the guitar. Then, within a long meditation, the heart starts to beat, interrupted by silences. The tension culminates into a sequence full of life and movements, followed by rhythmical noises on the saxophone keys accompanied by the gitarre, as a reminiscence of tibetan sounds: spoken words, ritual horn (Dung Chen) and a drum. And the heart is beating again. A tibetan singing bowl is ending the piece and I hope it will keep resonding for a long time... Caroline Charrière, July 2008
