As the co-founder of spectral music Gérard Grisey moves within a cosmos of partial tones and harmonics, he discloses the secrets of the interior of sound. In a momentous way this is shown inside his music, which acts always in a world between modern technology and poetry.
Sometimes Grisey analyses the different temporal structures of perception of humans, whales and insects or he generates his love songs out from the phonetical basic material. (Martina Seeber)

“Both [pieces] are extraordinary. [Les Chants de l'Amour] gathers together phrases and names associated with love and weaves them into a patchwork of beguiling sounds, to which artificial "voices", generated using IRCAM software, add an unearthly dimension. While some of the vocal writing recalls Stockhausen's Stimmung, it never feels derivative. Grisey's ability to push his music into expressive regions that few other composers of his generation have ever reached is also demonstrated in Le Temps et L'Ecume, in which the rich terracing of Grisey's spectral harmonies produces a fabulous interplay of live and synthesised sounds. It's a disconcerting, thrilling work, and like so much of Grisey's music it's uniquely personal.”
