About his piece for the New Art Songs project (2012):

"This song cycle combines poems from two collections by French-Caribbean poet Édouard Glissant (1928–2011): Le Sel noir (1960) and Boises (1983). I was immediately attracted by the remarkable musicality of Glissant’s language, and by the vividness of his poetic imagery, creating in each poem a unique landscape of sonic and visual representations. My musical setting, guided by my own, subjective interpretation of the poems, is intended as a dialogue, each time renewed, with these poetic representations."
