Compositions Slash

Compositions Slash Method

On this page, you’ll find an overview of compositions using the Slash technique, specially created at the request of Professor Marie-Elisabeth Faymonville for a comparative study on various approaches used at the Interdisciplinary Center of the University Hospital of Liège. Several studies examining these music compositions and their effects have been conducted since. You can find these studies on the Publications page and the description of the Slash technique, along with some details on the theory surrounding the creation of these musical works, on the Slash Technique page.

Compositions Slash Method : Therapeutic Music

Discover an effective sonic exploration for various conditions (sleep, anxiety, etc.).

With over 60 instrumental compositions to my credit, along with expertise in traditional music composition and computer-assisted music (CAM), I offer a unique approach where tempo and note count undergo simultaneous reduction to match our biorhythms. A synthesis of creativity, musical knowledge, sound physics, and human physiology, I invite you to explore my “Slash Techniques”. This technique is explained on the page that bears its name.

Inspired by metaphors from Professor Faymonville’s seven hypnoses and imbued with profound intentions, these musical compositions offer a captivating or soothing experience, but are primarily built on a specific technique that has already been the subject of several studies in the scientific community.

Listening to musical excerpts is still under construction. Feel free to contact me directly.

Jourrney Skyward

Inspired by the beautiful text of Professor Faymonville, entitled “Traveling Light,” I was led to create a 20-minute musical composition employing type A Slash technique.

The metaphors present in the text are of remarkable depth, and they are felt in an intuitive manner. This composition stands out for the well-being that ensues, offering a profound and immersive musical experience. This piece is one of the most striking musical compositions I have created, with special effects designed specifically to amplify the lightness evoked in the original text.

Keep Evolving

Lasting 20 minutes, this musical composition with type A Slash technique originates from Professor Faymonville’s hypnosis “Stories and Metaphors”. Translating verbal metaphors into musical metaphors is a highly complex exercise that led me to incorporate as many musical genres as metaphors. On this soothing composition, the non-verbal intervention of singer Martine Hovent’s voice adds additional richness through accentuation.
