A synthesized voice recites the text of À la recherche du temps perdu
by Marcel Proust, replacing the names of the characters with those of a man or woman who died during the past month.
Piano melodies composed in real time by an algorithm punctuate the diction of this spectral and disembodied voice.
Thus is established a strange literary purgatory, at the crossroads of reality and fiction.
