Jean-François Denis - Point-virgule

Duration: 3'

The sound material was sculpted by sampling (thanks to Philippe Moënne-Loccoz) and then tamed and articulated on the keyboard in the studio. Point-virgule (Semicolon) is developed through five approaches, enunciated one after the other, and concludes with an exclamation point.

Point-virgule was realized in July, 1990 at the studio of Collectif & Cie (Annecy, France) with the collaboration of Bernard Donzel-Gargand with support from the Canada Council for the Arts (CCA) and of the French Government.
