Spring is channelled through a sequence of three haikus: Jeux d’oiseaux [Bird Games], Jeux d’eau [Water Games], Jeux d’enfants [Children’s Games]. These tableaux put side by side snippets of the classical repertoire — shakuhachi, Olivier Messiaen, R Murray Schafer, Maurice Ravel, Claude Debussy — and composed sonic landscapes.

[English translation: François Couture, v-20]

Printemps [Spring] was realized in 2016 at the Métamorphoses d’Orphée studio of Musiques & Recherches in Ohain (Belgium) and premiered on November 9, 2016 during the Hors-les-murs: Haïkusmatique concert as part of the Ars Musica festival in the Centre Wallonie-Bruxelles in Paris (France).
