The author presents the concept of acoustic illusions in Jean-Claude Risset’s works. After a description of the psychoacoustic approach, she analyses sound illusions in two works: Computer Suite from Little Boy and Sud. Through these analyses, she links the music of Risset to works by Escher, Bach and Cézanne.
