Abstract:

The author analyses L’estuaire du temps by François-Bernard Mâche, a mixed work for orchestra and sampler. He contextualises his analysis through ideas expressed in the composer’s book Musique, mythe, nature. The first part develops the notion of models: the work’s fundamental model is established through the sampler’s perfomative input, the orchestra performs in correspondence with this model. The second part explains the idea of universal archetypes: the composer argues that all music is established through these archetypes, that they are present in all cultures.
