Programme notes

The crickets of my Montréal courtyard,
the she-wolf of my poetics and
the loon of my expeditions.

Specifically composed for the voices of the GGRIL, the piece is freely inspired by three animals — the cricket, the she-wolf and the loon. Following simple written instructions vocalists meet these animals in response to the musical interventions of the instrumentalists. A dialogue is established, creating a magical sound-space reminiscent of the wonderful world of fables and story tales.
