Acufene – ur.werk ensemble

for violin, cello, accordion, and eight sinus oscillators

Acufene is a piece written for ur.werk ensemble, and uses a new approach to my auditive scores concept. The premiere of the piece is on the 16th of April 2022 in Montreal – Espace Wilder, then in May 4th at the NDR radio hall, Hannover, Germany.

The head is bright and narrow, the eyes adjoining each other. 
The heart pounds in the ears
and the body is disengaged like a sculpture seated on a bench. 
The chest is spatted slightly 
by a tickling oozing through the throat. 
The ears liquefy and cluster back to a ring. 
Fluid run through the occiput, fills the back 
and with each inhalation thick gas fills the breast. 
It also leak to the thighs. 
All over the body the white, resounding, trembles. dark white.

La tête est brillante et étroite, les yeux sont adjacent.
Le c?ur bat dans les oreilles 
et le corps est désinvesti comme une sculpture assise sur un banc.
La poitrine est pigmentée 
par un picotement qui vient de la gorge.
Les oreilles se liquéfient et se fondent en un anneau.
Le fluide coule dans l’occiput, inonde le dos 
et à chaque inspiration, un gaz épais remplit la poitrine.
