The translation of the title is "Solar Wind." It is inspired by the spectral sounds generated by the thirteen sound propagators (bowls, vibrating membranes, pipe, acoustic oscillators) that form the instrument, the Babel Table. The tape part has been realized from recordings of the instrument. Its aim is to densify the sonic continuum of the piece. Holding a microphone in one hand, the musician amplifies the sounds of the instrument, the amplitude of which filters the tape part in real time.

This version of Vent Solaire was performed by Jean-François Laporte and filmed at Totem Électrique IX, Montreal (Quebec), on 4 June 2017.
