“This will often be about geometry, two straight lines constantly intersecting. Itʼs a metric approach – geometry in Euclidian vectorial spaces. The proof is the independence of the frames within the “tableau”. This characterization applies to the more general case of modules as isolated images, as frames within the arrangement. In the overall view of the “tableau”, with the equivalent properties that arise from it, a linear combination appears which, leaving aside the artistic point of view, I describe as a musical art formwhose principles can themselves turn entirely into music. Curiously, we always end up focusing on success. When you decide to make this kind of piece, you do indeed have to make choices and filter things.The work is very precisely determined in advance thanks to a notation system. I only want to say that in the “tableau” something peaceful and silent moves, like a constant gaze into eternity.
During the planning of Finow-Cinema, I noticed that the rules became more and more important. The images in the “tableau” are silent landscapes with no one in them. With no narrative.”
