Sibylle is adapted from a more ambitious project, Effraction de l’oubli for butoh dance, by choreographer/dancer Camille Mutel. Thanks to Camille Mutel (recorded voice symbolizing the Sibyl). Sibylle was awarded a mention in the Concurso Internacional de Composição Electroacústica Música Viva (Lisbon, Portugal 2015).
