Anthèmes 2 is an extanded version of Anthèmes 1 which has been revised for violin and live electronics at IRCAM in 1997. Compared to the first version, the question was to find how to coordonate the artist’s interpretation with the computer’s one.

The piece of Boulez work also uses a much more sophisticated system based on a perceptive approach of the spatial sound which enables the auditors to clearly hear the sounds wherever they are, regardless of the place and number of loudspeakers.
