« A musical composition for electroacoustic sounds, mechanical instruments and remote controlled resonant objects, Fantôme, (…) is played in a resounding, luminous immersion space, a mellow, enveloping environment that plunges the audience in the depth of musical vibration. By organizing different stimuli (sounds, mechanical automatons motions, vibrations of materials, luminous intensity), this piece displays a writing appealing to all the senses, yet music remains the dominant language, toying with mystery and fascination. A sensorial experiment then, but one of remembrance too: hidden under the composition, some fragments from Orpheus’s myth invite us to echo what remains – in a confused or unconscious way – in our head or body, of the figure of Orpheus and of his lost Euridyce. »
