From a photo taken by Jeannik Marcault when he was visiting the Tate Gallery, Charles-Edouard Platel imagined in video a romantic story between the characters of the different paintings exhibited at this place.

The music is also a kind of flirt with the incertitude: it was designed thanks to Randolon, an auto-generative software instrument. The melodies introduce themselves, get mixed up, then untie and endless take up again, depending on hazard and repetition, however under the musician's inspiration.

Sound material: piano, guitar, bass.
