légère fièvre

légère fièvre, which is translated into “slight fever” in English, emphasizes the repetitive motifs and the delicate morphing patterns of sound. Breathing is one very important aspect of my compositions, and this piece is no exception, as I have given constant breathing cycles from the beginning to the end. “légère fièvre” was commissioned by the Nebula Ensemble in 2017, and was composed in Tokyo and Pittsburgh.
