The instrumental character of this project, made up of six distinct movements, is only shaken by rare vocal interventions supporting passages where the music becomes more intense. This real sound puzzle assembled by Daffodil reveals the darkness and modernity characteristic of his latest productions. His meticulous mixing work allows this 25-minute musical piece, thought of as a whole, to evolve in the sandstone of unexpected rhythmic and harmonic breaks during which the trumpet and electronic sounds incessantly revive the machine.

The 25-minute of sonic expedition appears in a single piece of music containing the following six movements:

1. Sans préavis

2. L’air d’un vaincu

3. Navire de sauvetage

4. Terrain vague

5. Le temps gagné

6. Cavale
