The title of this new piece/space references the sonic world in which Jonas (represented by the robotic instrument) would have plunged into once he was swallowed by the whale.

Jonas dans la baleine is music material that explores sonic, timbral and unique vibrational worlds. The piece is a pure display of sound layers void of tempo, reminding a flow stasis, and silent evaporation. This music of mass and movement using a timbral evolution and fluctuation pattern, self-organizing through accumulation and proliferation, creating a very organic sonic world. Polyphony is more than global harmony, more than total timber, hidden, behind a quasi-static whole, incredibly animated units.

recording from the concert at Hexagram during the Montreal New Music Festival the 1 mars 2015. It is an excerpt of 11min because the begining of the piece is really quiet and is made to be heard by people who walk around the physical instruments.
