Notes on the work:

Somewhere in the mountains, near the village of Paoma on the west coast of Corsica, in the middle of the wild maquis, lies a forgotten prehistoric dolmen. A set of imposing granite rocks in the centre of which the bodies of the dead used to be incinerated.

Dolmen for cello is freely inspired by this testimony of a distant civilization. With its low sounds and its micro-intervals polyphonic structure, the work follows the footprints of the site the silence of which bears traces of funerary rites of the past.
