Composed in October 2004, ‘Prediction’ is based on the elaboration of musical ideas after listening to hours of soundscape music, but extremely brief samples were extracted from various pieces by Bernard Fort. ‘Prediction’ moves from a of a dramatic beginning based on percussive clusters followed by a dynamic, reverberating continuum. The piece develops through light rhythmical patterns, the tenuous sound of birds and goes towards a fatal, obscure decrescendo interrupted by another cluster. The conclusion mixes striated electronic sounds, the sound of birds and reiterative patterns. A prediction is an announcement that something is going to happen. Not necessarily unpleasant of course. But this piece refers to a fatal disruption of natural environment.
