Since it first came into being, electronics, like instrumental music, has taken on numerous forms and depending on the generation, the aesthetics and the technologies used, assume a very different nature.
Shintaro Imaï's virtuosity multiplies the cello in real time. His La lutte bleue lives up to its name, such is the tension between the cello and its transformations.
In Winter fragments Tristan Murail favours the fusion between electronic sounds and instruments, brought together by the spectral relationship between the two worlds. The composer, as is often the case, alludes to nature, bringing his cherished poetic world to the fore.
In the work Benjamin de La Fuente and Pierre Jodlowski, the computer has not erased the traces of analogics and electro-acoustics. Here, sound and noise live side by side just as text and image do, and it is not fusion that is highlighted but the dialectic between instrumental sounds and the product of the technology.
