The idea is to subject the Song of Roland, “monument” of the French language, to a series of linguistic alterations, to literally “ruin” the text in a sort of accelerated archeological time.

Erosion, fragmentation, sedimentation: these phenomena when applied to language become whispering, silences, noises and interrupted songs. The poem is tk under another form, another terrain, new bumps which hint at it’s former splendour. In a quasi-romantic vision the remains are envisaged here as the recreation of a language.
