Estuaire was an attempt at appropriating the serial aesthetic for my own benefit - I was trying to make it say something that it couldn't say: coloured images, gestures, moving shapes. The enterprise was paradoxical, and the result ambiguous, a transitional work. After this I managed to completely liberate myself from the stylistic fashions of the day, with Territoires de l'Oubli, a piece truly written for the piano, by the piano. The music is created from the way in which the instrument rings and resonates. The virtuosic writing refers more to Liszt than to the composers of the twentieth century.
