Le voyage

"Say, what did you see?" Johannes Maria Straud, today's authoritative young Austrian composer, sets sail toward the "Terra Nova" of electronics, taking over Baudelaire's founding interrogations put to music.

Interwoven with the voices of the Cris de Paris and the lyricism of the soloists from the Ensemble intercontemporain, the actor Marcel Bozonnet leads this interior monologue all the way to its last step, "at the far end of the unknown, to find something new."
