listen to an excerpt (mp3), by Jean-Paul Celea :     P'hioni (extr.)


P'hioni (pronouced between Pioni et Fioni) is a Georgian name (from the Caucasian Republic, formerly in the Soviet Union), for a rather strong wind that blows from the East.. This is the fourth piece of a cycle on winds, for solo instruments and tapes. The performer is like a character that leads us, while being himself carreid away by the wind, in a voyage where we cross evocations, borrowings, of music and sounds, like if it were sonic emanations brought by the wind.
