François Bayle

horizontal-vertical has been performed in Cologne…

To Christoph von Blumröder

What initially inspired me was the idea of movement, the thrust of a stream. A double thrust, since to that which slowly invades the listening area, this other is also added, the vertical one, which raises (us). Elevation, revelation. Through successive stanzas these two pressures will support each other, one in a smooth way and the other through impatience. Tablecloths and eddies, updrafts.
