Douze Horizons is an instantaneous composition, oscillating between sound performance and radio creation "horspel".

It was created as part of a commission from Avatar, an artist-run center for audio and electronic art, located in Quebec City, Canada.
This CD is an archive of the first performance that took place at Méduse in October 2021 in Quebec City.

The questions of paleoecology and paleoclimatology are summoned here, from the postglacial period and the Goldthwait Sea to the present day.
It has been imagined in its temporal organization, as a superposition of subjective strata feeding on sound materials collected in eastern Quebec, in Nitassinan.

The photos in this collection are from my travels in Quebec between 2005 and 2021.
It is a testimony of the current landscapes, of imprints and erosions that I have noted all along the road 138, until its end.
