Prog. notes: Le train de la vie is a series of works begun in 2010 composed for solo instrument and electronics.
Le train de la vie V – Alison is dedicated to Christelle Séry and was commissioned by the Why Note Festival, Centre national de création musicale La Muse en Circuit, Césaré and GEME.

The sound of the piece consists of three levels of continuously superimposed sounds: electric guitar, pre-recorded sound loops, and electroacoustic extracts.
These three principle sounds also contain several levels of sound inside each sonority (such as harmonic sounds - ordinary- noise of electric guitar) in a search for directionality and morphology: time and light superimposed.

The rain has stopped, the clouds have drifted away, and the weather is clear again.
If your heart is pure, then all things in your world are pure.
Abandon this fleeting world, abandon yourself,
Then the moon and flowers will guide you along the Way.

- Zen Master Daigu Ryokan (良寛大愚) (1758–1831)
