Les Idées Heureuses (1996-1997)

A cycle with multiple reflections: 2 quartets at the extremes, 2 duets separated by the woody fragance of a polyphonic marimba solo, a scherzo for a trio that scatters the matter of the past and the future like dust. Rhythmic and harmonic complexity? Only extrapolations of a straightforaward eightnote melody (heard in the coda as a percussion duet).
