The rosette is this rounded off mouth which remains motionless in the middle of the guitar in eternal one yawn.
Several rosettes are so going to have a dialogue throughout this piece, because the soloist is confronted with one or several guitars ghosts broadcasted by other rosettes, those of the loudspeakers.
A wide polyphony of bells and chimes – diverted from sounds of the guitar or mixing to them – build the skeleton of the work and maybe pulls us towards other rosettes still, those who toss their colored petals under the resonant vault of cathedrals.
