Du côté du miroir

Leroux, Hurel, Schaathun

Reflection on the creative process, Apocalypsis, the new piece by Philippe Leroux, is considered both after the event and during its creation. Following the event because the material that furnished the composition comes from the reworking of the piece that preceeded the creation of Apocalypsis, Voi(rex). The piece's creation because its form mimics the chronology of the compositional stages in Voi(rex) : twenty minutes of music for twenty months of work.
