Nightpiece represents an imaginary night scene, a mental landscape similar to the wooded areas near Poitiers where I practice running. Despite the apparent calm of these spaces, there’s a constant hustle and bustle, whether through the streams or the animals and insects that inhabit these woods. When night falls and I’m on my way home, I often change the music I’m listening to and switch to more pastoral pieces, seeking a slower, calmer breath, as if to efface myself before this nature and not disturb it on the cusp of its sleep. This experience of everyday life accompanied me during the writing of this short piece for solo oboe, in which I tried to avoid formalisms in favor of an aesthetic of vocality, without neglecting the formal tension brought about by formal tension brought about by more or less velocity and articulation.
