From Evian to Shanghai

On October 19th, the day before my concert, I had a coffee at the Park Hyatt Hotel, at the 87th floor of the Shanghai World Financial Center.

I had taken my draft of Electroclarinet 1: I still had to clarify details of the score before the performance.

In the summer of 1993, I spent 10 weeks as a worker in the Evian bottling plant.

It was fun to think that both the water and myself had made the trip from the Alps to the highest tower in China!
