Making music is an exploration.

An exploration of the sounds of today’s urban, 
technological and discontinuous environment.

Through an immersion in the acoustics of 
the trombone quartet and the voice of a countertenor, 
horizons explores the fusion of timbres, 
the analogy with reality:

one voice or several voices, 
a motorcycle racing or an opera, 
the ice cracking in lasergun or 
a requiem for the loss of a loved one?
