August 11, 1999, the Northern half of France has the nose in the air: will the total eclipse be visible in spite of the clouds? The successive phenomena are recalled by the music: darkening in full midday, flying shades, the coldness, the silence of the animals in the black, and the merry return of the light.

Sound material: voices, Yamaha DX FM synthesizer, graphic software synthesizer using the photography of the eclipse as a sonogram.
