Messiaen, ma passion

An infinite story about birds, colours and love...

Beyond technique, mathematics and archaic symbols, there is much beauty and color hidden in Messiaen's music. It's like watching the waves hit the shore... Eternity itself is expressed through movements and sounds in mysterious combinations. 

Messiaen's music is philosophy, a reflection of the Universe, where the ego melts in the infinite form of manifestations of life, a complete musical phenomenon that brings together French rationalism and Oriental philosophy, an obsession for order and freedom of hazard.
