A crucial work in the spatialized music repertoire, the fruit of a long period of creation, Répons requires the performers be arranged in a special configuration. A chamber ensemble is in the middle of the room, six soloists are placed along the periphery of the room around the audience, and six groups of loudspeakers project the electronics in real-time.
