Toujours vers toi

Toujours vers toi 0

'Toujours vers toi' is a piece that is written for Klangforum Wien in 2016. The instrumentation is flute, clarinet, trombone, piano, 2 violins, viola, cello & electronics.


In the piece ’Toujours vers toi” (in my interpretation it is translated into "Always against you”. Normally it would be ”Always to/about you”). I'm working on the thoughts of group dynamics & pressure. Another influence comes from colonies and their fight for independence. Yet another one comes from when people are fleeing their country with the hope of a better future. The thing thats binds these subjects together is the hope of a change & better future. Also the feeling of not belonging anywhere. Fight spirit & confusion when it feels like the whole world is against you. The title comes from a poem by the french poet René Char.
