Works of Vincent Paulet (b. 1962) seek a new route of expression within modernism, largely rejecting the apparent antagonism of avant-gardism and post-modernism. While freely atonal, his music gradually incorporates elements of an earlier tradition. The relation of time is a key element: listening time cannot be compressed and duration affects the quality of memory. The composer intentionally ended a promising future as a concert organist in 1994 to devote his energies to composition for which he has received many accolades and prizes in international competitions. Véronique Le Guen plays the Pascal Quoirin organ at Saint-Rémy de Provence. The superb Les Éléments Chamber Choir sings as directed by Joël Suhubiette.
