    Flowers fall
    and already for me too

    This Haiku by Issa is one of the sources of inspiration for my quartet "Le Pavillon des Songes”, which is replete with Japanese references. The first movement explores an almost imperceptible temporality by playing on the extremely slow movement of the bow and by using the transition from the tones of one instrument to another in order to maintain a virtually unbroken stream of sounds, thus evoking the playing of the shō. From the second movement, the contrasts appear in cycles, as a kind of evocation of nature. The third movement moves us into a very different sound universe by presenting a carillon derived from the spectrum of a bell recorded in a Koyasan temple. The tableaux follow one another in inexorable cycles, evoking images of the seasons celebrated in the Haïku of Japanese masters.
