I met French composer and founder of Musique Concrète, Pierre Henry, for the first time during a performance in Stavanger (Norway) in September 2006. Four years later, after numerous travels back and forth between Stavanger and Paris, my joint project with Henry was launched. The book, a seemingly endless flow of photos, moving room by room, from macro close-ups to overviews, is like a visit in the house, accompanied by a CD containing previously unreleased pieces by Pierre Henry: Capriccio, Phrases de Quatuor, Miroirs de Temps and Envol.
