"The memory of the Isis-Osiris couple came back to me. It contains the novel in nucleo." In his diary, Robert Musil noted this quick comparison between his poem from 1923 and the large work in progress, l’Homme sans qualités. Brother and sister, figures of twinship, a superhumain and violent effort to go beyond duality?
Isis & Osiris, the program of creation by Jacques Lenot divided between a symphony of wind instruments, the earth, and electronics, the sky. Musicians perform under a virtual dome (ambisonics) in IRCAM's Espace de projection where four virtual orchestras are "suspended", meticulously arranged in the room's space.
From the sky, a sonorous dust haze.
