La vie quotidienne

Composer: Nicolas Gilbert
for saxophone quartet and electronics

The everyday actions of François Meunier are in no way very particular. The sounds of his existence are, all things considered, much similar to those of my own existence, to those of yours. Nevertheless, those actions and those sounds are what this is all about. When François Meunier told me about what he did on November 11 2009, I immediately felt that there was something musical, there, that I had to bring out.
