Composer Notes : NoaNoa ('Fragrant') was born from the ideas that I had for flute while writing my ballet music “Maa”.  I wanted to write down, exaggerate, even abuse certain flute mannerisms that had been haunting me for some years, and thus force myself to move onto something new.  Formally I experimentd with an idea of developing several elemants simultaneously – first sequentially, then superimposed on each other.

The title refers to a wood cut by Paul Gauguin called “NoaNoa”.  it also refers to a travel diary of the same name, written by Gauguin during his visit to Tahiti in 1891-93.  The fragments of phrases selected for the voice part in the piece come from this book.

NoaNoa is also a team work.  Many details in the flute part were worked out with flutist Camilla Hoitenga.  The electronic part was developed under the supervision of Jean-Baptiste Barriere and programmed by Xavier Chabot.
