Notes on this piece
[Please contact the composer for performance materials]

West Pole was completed in January 2009. It is composed for pianist Stephane Ginsburgh and premiered at the Ars Musica Festival in Brussels. 
   The piece uses the piano sounds combined with concrete, synthesized sounds, instrumental and soundscape sounds that, along with their references and their semiotics, aim to create a multilevel experience.
   The title of the piece refers to the increasingly stronger scientific evidence of human influence on climate change. There is a moment in the piece where one can hear Morse code signaling SOS. Moreover, I use several associations to natural phenomena and everyday activities. It is like a story within a story that everyone can hear in their own words. West Pole is the result of an extreme axial tilt; it is a wonderland where the sounds are sensed from all of the senses. 
   This piece was awarded the 2009 Giga-Hertz Special Prize for electronic music in Germany and an Honorable Mention at the Bourges - 36e Concours International de Musique et d'Art Sonore Electroacoustiques in France.
