The sound material is exclusively derived and processed from stones recordings. The first part, Aerolite (flying stone) is mainly based on " aerial " field recording of stone manipulations. The second part, Baetylus (sacred stone) is made with electromagnetic capture of meteorite resonances. This meteorite was part of the Campo Del Cielo site. Deltas (2012) "Whenever the volume of water is so great as to counteract and almost neutralize the force of tides and currents, and in all cases where the latter agents have not sufficient power to remove to a distance the whole of the sediment periodically brought down by rivers, deltas are produced." A Guest + a Host α (2011- 12'29) Commissioned for Ina-GRM's Retro/Actif at La Gaîte Lyrique, Paris, France. Originally displayed on 16 channels, this work is exclusively composed with non-processed and original sounds made with the legendary Coupigny Modular Synth housed in the Groupe de Recherches Musicales' studios. This work is structured as three dialectical parts : electricity + crystals = spectrum. "A Guest + Host = Ghost" (M. Duchamp)
