Composer's Notes
Deutsch Français

Greeting Music is in fact a very sad piece. It should be entirely performed with no expression in the face…and the body should just do the movements it needs to perform…the five performers should look more like zombies. The piece is somehow related to a hopeless world where nothing is to be done nor felt.

— Claude Vivier
