Thanks to Jérôme Thomas, juggling is now recognized in France as a unique and distinct art. Conceptualized for a septet which includes a juggler, Dels dos principis is the fruit of an already established collaboration between the artist and the composer Henry Fourès.
"Through the intervention of music technology and its new tools, the gestural characteristics are translated, manipulated and composed in a veritable chamber music score." Henry Fourès.
