Mirage is music for an imaginary dancer. His dance is consealed in the sounds of the instruments and the reflexions thrown back by the computer through the loudspeakers. A mirage for all those who on and off loose the foothold in persuit of a solid form. Groping about, the dance searches for a direction, a structure seemingly materializing in rythms and leaps, only to vanish in the next moment. All that is solid…… Music runs by, leaving fleeting traces in the membranes of memory. A mirage for the ear. The dancer moves towards the illusive goal of reaching the absolute balance of movement. And then to terminate, without ceasing. I catch a last glimpse of him just before the lights goes out in the hall...
