Comme un oeil suspendu et poli par le songe...

Note

Comme un oeil... carries the influence of Messiaen - the piece was written for the entrance exam of the Conservatoire National de Musique de Paris, therefore before my studies with Messiaen. An allusion to the composer is found several years later and more consciously in Cloches d'adieu... written as a homage a little time after his death. The "bells" heard in the piece belong to the universe of spectral music and to that of Messiaen.
