Vox Aeternam Gilles Fresnais

This piece, based on all that is inexpressible, refers to the eternity of minerals (rocks and water) and the eternity of time always sought by humans (monk chants). But beyond the eternal voices of rocks and monks, there is the human being who is expressed in the processing of musical objects: recordings of percussion on rocks and water sounds, natural or somewhat unprocessed, and the ’natural’ voice of Tibetan monks, which have never been processed or artificially created by the digital processing of voices. Contrasts leading to human rhythmic sequencing are so artificial; but percussion on rocks are so natural. The promise is a kind of meditation developed with all used sound objects.
