    will rather will nothingness than not will”

    *[self] is a musique concrète composition based on the concept
    of ascetic ideals. Its eight movements are inspired by the desert
    journeys of those prophets in search of purity and simplicity
    through self-denial. It questions the pertinence of such voluntary
    pittance in order to obtain redemption.

    Composed between July 2013 and February 2015. A string trio
    version of the piece also exists in which this electronic version
    is interpreted as an audio score coupled with a graphic score
    by Paul-Antoine Gauvreau. The string version was premiered
    in Manchester by Distractfold Ensemble. The electronic version
    was premiered at the Akousma Douze festival in Montréal.
