Bilingual versions of sound performances in non-French-speaking countries and translated into the language of the host country.
In these bilingual versions, the translation voices are added to the French voices (always present and the main vector of narratives). These oral translations are expressed in indirect style and constitute a form of added commentary that takes place within the compositions in a musical, rhythmic and specific way to each sequence, as a new sound element in its own right.
 
Audience sitting in the darkness of a performance or concert hall, in the middle or facing two speakers.

Oral translations in English by Marie Losier, Federico Marulanda Miles Hankin and Peter O’Brien, in Italian by Marina Melancorteci and Massimo Prandini, in German by Ruth Gamper and Daniel Darius Oskui.
