Rituel is an exceptionally uncommon 5 to 10 minutes sound experience. The work is showing a FlyingCan’s twirl which displays his vibrancy all around the performer. The title is mostly refering to the notion of ritual in the sense of a celebration for which each detail of the progress is observed with respect, where each movement is a contemplation. In this work, the sound celebration is one of sharing and is a real testimony of the musician’s own musical experience.
