[ISEA95] Artist Statement: Daniel Leduc — Traverser les grandes eaux / Pleine lune / Reponse impressionniste

Artist Statement


Traverser les grandes eaux is inspired by a phrase frequently encountered in the French translation of the I Ching: “It is advantageous to cross the great waters”. It is a prelude to a suite of sixty-four pieces under one minute in duration, inspired by the hexagrams of the Book of Changes.                                                                                                                                                  Pleine lune is an excerpt from Nuits sans parole. It plunges you into the sleepless, indigo night. Reponse impressionniste was created using sounds produced by the SYTER system (GRM, Paris).
