Anthèmes 2 is an extension of Anthèmes 1, rewritten for violin and electronics in real-time at IRCAM in 1977. Following the first version, the concern was to discover how to coordinate the soloist’s interpretation and the computer.
 Dialogue de l'ombre doubletitle borrowed from “Soulier de satin” by Claudel — is a rotation of strophes and transitions interpreted by the same musician. The strophes are played live on stage, the pre-recorded transitions are played over loudspeakers. The presence real and specific of one, opposed to the imaginary and diffuse presence of the other.
