“König”: Electronic piece composed initially for the An Donham virtual reality device by Gaëtan Le Coarer (based on an Irish legend).
Goolash: Composed following a series of reading/sound performances with a schoolgirl in 2 prisons in Corsica, Goolash refers to the Gulag and the confinement/isolation that the “visitor” can feel during these few hours spent in prison. We come out free to be able to return to our comfortable world while the prisoners remain locked up!
