It is the continuation of a body of work intertwining instrumental and electronic music following the acclaimed 2004-2008 work les arbres (Mention, Prix Ars Electronica 2009). The mixture this time is more edgy : a rich and complex  electronic sound composition alongside the folk inspired guitar played by Simon Trottier (member of the extraordinary haunted blues band Timber Timbre). After 2 albums of improvised folktronica with Simon Trottier, Nicolas Bernier decided to explore that singular mixity further in a formal compositional context. This time, Trottier is interpreting the music written and scored by Bernier.

Conceptually, the piece is wind powered. Wind as  a constructive/destructive agent. Wind as an agent of travel (oh! the sailing ships of Jacques Cartier). Wind as a propulsion engine of particles in constant movement in the air. Wind as noise. Wind is sound. Wind and music are Invisible.
