From the composer: In Double Bind?, my desire is to offer, on the one hand, a glimpse of the inner life of sounds and, on the other hand, a fantasized manipulated and altered view of the relationship between musician and instruemnt as well as life “in the wings” of a musician. As in my preceeding work for live instruments and electronics, I have taken an interest here in the playful jumple of the limits between the “real” and the “artificial.”
Double Bind? was premiered on 2 December 2007 at the Theatre des Bouffes du Nord in Paris by Hae-Sun Kang, for whom the work was written. The live electronics were designed by Benoit Meudic at IRCAM.
