Description:
"Ni fleurs ni couronnes: Monument pour Jonathan Harvey" has been commissioned by Mr. Jean-Luc Peêrs for violinist Wibert Aerts. The score is dedicated to Wibert Aerts and to the memory of my friend Jonathan Harvey who passed away too early in December 2012.

The work is scored for violin with ghost-violins and -bells, that are 4-channel audio tracks. These audio tracks were realized at the Centre Henri Pousseur in Liège with special thanks to Jean-Marc Sullon. The 'ghost-bells' are no actual bell sounds but samples from the lids of the pots and pans in my kitchen.

The piece lasts about 12 minutes and consists of an introduction followed by four sections of unequal length. The intro features high harmonic sounds with long ghost-violin chords, turning around the audience. The first (short) section is a counterpoint of quarter-tone melodies leading tothe lengthy 'quasi cadenza' section, in which the violin is joined by gradually more and more violins towards a climax where the ghost-bells are introduced at full strength. Theses bells continue in the short third section leading to the final in which a melody unfolds along with a ringmodulated violin sound. The work ends peacefully on a background of deep bell sounds, a nod to the ending of Jonathan Harvey's 'classical' work "Mortuos plango, vivos voco".
