    I am contacting you to ask some questions on one of your composition.
    I discover two of your Commentari , commentari I and commentari II on the CD of Dorothee Oberlinger “Peripheries” and I had a true blow of heart for the Commentari I,the sound wealth allowed by the electronique, the density of instrumentals colors, the research born in sequences of the XII.s.
    I teach the recorder in a province of France and I shall like makinf share this blow of heart by interpreting your part in a medieval chapel.
    I shall wish to know if it is possible to have a copy of the manuscript as well as the information on the processes of repeat broadcast electronique used.
    In the hope that you can follow up my request.
    Sincerlly, Claire Daniel
