I met HANATSUmiroir during my collaboration with the Percussions de
Strasbourg on Drum‐Machines in 2016. We decided with Ayako Okubo and
Olivier Maurel to explore the peculiar aspect of my work wich consist in
unbuilding and rebuilding the sound priorities of an ensemble.

This project is about amplified contrabass flute, percussions, sound
objects, electromagnetic lutherie, amplified electric streams, all going into my
idiosyncratic device.

We created Echoplasme during a long‐residency period, which allowed
us to apply a dynamic composition process : the instruments have transmitted
a corpus of instrumental and sound materials that I can organize differently in
their tessiture and time. This hybrid composition process looks more like an
on‐stage writing compared to a classical writing process which would be said
‘on the table’ in my case ‘on the mixing device’. I felt it was very pertinent for
me as a composer and a free improviser, to transpose my music in an
instrument‐augmented version. From this working process was born a more
free and complete musical relation between the composer and the interpret,
resonating with our time.
