Of all the things that I have learned about my own music, the notions of revealing and discovery seem the most essential. There are two sides of myself at work here, in co-operation, and sometimes in conflict, in the creation of the pieces presented on this disc. On the one hand, I search for sound sources that are sonically appealing, and that I connect with on a personal and tangible level in their real-world and everyday setting. On the other, through processes of transformation, reconstruction and imagination, I create and reveal hidden spaces, characters and substance from those sources. Within, underneath and behind the sound objects and concepts there are often unexpected sound worlds in terms of detail, colour and dynamic. For me, this multi-faceted aural-vision that twists, turns and opens into itself is the magic of the art form. It is also through this process of discovering the hidden side (la face cachée) that I discover as much about myself. (David Berezan, la face cachée, empreintes DIGITALes, 2008)
