A metaphor. Take this person I used to know quite well. I did not see her for a very long time; say I unexpectedly meet her. During our short meeting I stubbornly try to connect her familiar elements with the stream of new signs being displayed. Unsatisfying effort; polished surfaces, unforeseen iridescences, darkened areas meet one's eye. Past certain points the paths lead nowhere. Thickets, bushes. The despair of recognizing something. And, on the other side, that stranger standing there, who looks so much like me. All I know of my nature and that of the universe is incomplete; it is exactly as if I knew nothing. “Portrait d'un visiteur” was made possible through the invitations of the GMEM (Marseille, France), the McGill University Electronic Music Studio (Montréal, Québec) and the Studio Multisons (Montréal, Québec).
