As in art, so in travels: in the past as in the present, artists have tried to be travelers in other ethnic realities, to grasp distant worlds and their exoticism, and to make them serve as sources of inspiration.

Médiator (… pincer la musique aujourd’hui…) [plectrum, plucking music today] is, among other things, a musical “travel book”, the testimony of an admiration for the musics of the Far East, which can be found in other works of mine.

Just as the plectrum mediates between the hand and the string, Médiator is a friendly attempt at communication between musical instruments of our tradition and certain sounds and gestures of east Asian musics.
