Quick Overview

La Mandragore ("The Mandrake") Under the gallows grows the mandrake. At midnight, when the moon is full, it is picked beneath the hanged man who swings... The mandrake: a Mediterranean plant used in witchcraft Due to its mot in the shape of a homunculus, it is believed to have magic powers. The music: a spiral centred on several ostinati of rhythm, colour and timbre - five "spectral" chords of variable appearance turn in the arms of the spiral. This piece was commissioned by pianist Tomoko Yazawa and the French Ministry of Culture.
