descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Satoko Inoue is an experienced performer of Ferrari's works and had a lively exchange of ideas with the composer, who was also present at the recording sessions. No wonder then that precisely those ideas of open work and its "anecdotal" interpretation were the ones that were most important to him - as such sounds were to him always abstract at the core, even if he first illustrated them in a very visual and associative way. Satoko Inoue writes: "We discussed, he explained about each section. Luc had really specific images and meanings of his music materials..."-Nina Polaschegg
