Inspired by the poem lettera amorosa from René Char. His writing reflects both his Provençal origins and his years of active participation in the French resistance. Working together with choreographer Thierry Niang on the poem, it made sense to divide it into: autum, winter, spring and touch. It talks about a man living a period of loosing love, freezing into him self, awaking and coming back to life. We recorded in the former gdr broadcast studios, Nalepa Strasse, Berlin and used 7 pairs of high class mircrophons positioning them in the way that we could use the natural sound developement of the doublebass in different distances and hights.
