Commissioned by the Haute École de Musique de Genève and the Strategic Fund HES-SO for Research.
Escapes is part of a research project linking the Geneva University of Music and the NCCR Affective Sciences. Named "Gestuaire", this project aims to better understand the emotional implications of musical processes, whether it be for composers, musicians or the public.
In collaboration with researchers from the NCCR, it was decided that the work should be written for three dissociated instrumental groups: three wind instruments, three violins and three percussionists. The basic idea was to stage different types of extremely varied musical gestures and to measure their emotional implications, in a scientific sense.
