There are the sounds that I gather, those that I make up, there is all that I settle before with protocols and that I deploy. And above all, there is what comes here, to my ears, sometimes by accident, when the material is worked on in the studio, by the tape itslef, by the microphone. In the beginning, I am not interested in any sound more than any other, I simply go where I think I feel something and I deepen. The form that it takes (broadcasting, performance, record) depends essentialy on the music itself. When it makes sense, the context or the space of the broadcast can determine the facts. The complexity of qualities, their assembling, is the core of my music ; seized between a semblance of realism and the desire for the greatest vagueness. I search for a tension.
