Language: English

The author describes his approach of mixed music composition and interpretation (percussion and electronic). He describes his experimentation through two pieces: Le cirque du tambour (1999) for percussion, live electronics, video and acrobats and Pat (1997) for Zarb and live electronics. These two projects were realised with devices from IRCAM.
