I did have the opportunity with Loïc Pierre and some singers belonging to Mikrokosmos, to fly to New York in the fall of 2013 with the intention of meeting Meredith Monk and singing her music, in order to accompany her during her French tour.
During this same period, Mikrokosmos already revealed his program: The night revealed (entirely spatialized concert that I sang several times) and Loïc Pierre already thought very seriously of conceiving a shamanic night which would be the counterpart. It then appeared to me as obvious to select for him a piece which would reuse and try to develop the ‘reflex canon’ technique, on which method we worked with Meredith Monk in Other worlds revealed, by adapting it to her plan, what she was excited about.
