As if it had been here
for bass flute and delays
Sometimes we hear or see things that don’t exist. Video or audio mirages grab our attention, we perceive the non-existent. We listen and hear sounds that do not exist, we hear the vibrations of the air that do not exist. All of this is only an illusion created with the help of our experience and mind that seems real to us.
The structure and dynamics of this work were determined by its future performer. When he was given the opportunity to listen to a noise recording of the city, he was asked to indicate in which places he would hear human or natural sounds (which were not included in the recording).
