about

Now that every mountain has been overcome, that humanity is exploring space as well as the ultimate limits of matter, what is the next step? Did we achieve happiness for all that? Is there anything else to discover?

This is what the French novelist and poet René Daumal already wondered about 70 years ago. The alternative he offers to the loss of symbols and sacred is "Le Mont Analogue" (Mount Analogue), an immeasurably high but invisible mountain, which several friends decide to discover and then to climb up. René Daumal died while writing the "symbolically authentic" story of this ascent. The text breaks off with a comma.

While writing the first tracks of this recording, I have been realizing that this music was deeply influenced by Mount Analogue. I decided therefore to continue this idea and to try the ascent me too, this time to the end.
