The Traces gravées dans le Sable have been first performed by See Siang Wong on September 9th, 2009, at the Hall Hirschengraben in Zurich, during a concert of the Musikpodium Zürich. This cycle is dedicated to See Siang Wong.
Duration of the work : approximately 12 minutes
The six pieces of this cycle are inspired by texts of the Chan tradition. The Chan is a Buddhist school implanted in China since the 6th century. It has much influenced the thinking and the art of China, furthermore intermingling closely with the Taoist culture.
These pieces are more meditations on texts rather than a single description. These appeased contemplations are voluntarily bare and sober.
