Everything was composed from 2004 to 2009 by Vincent Bergeron and is protected by SOCAN. (58:00)

All music composed chord by chord (collage or not, it’s the same thing in my case) by Vincent Bergeron and Berger Rond for strings instruments (cellos, violins, double bass, piano, koto, acoustic and elect. guitars...) for winds instruments (clarinets, saxophones, flutes, tuba, oboe, sho...) for percussions and drums (tabla, marimba, lawae, timpani, drum machine...) and for keyboards (accordion, church organ, synths and samplers.
