Un monsieur qui a du souffle (2020, 2022)

for ensemble
for wind band

"Un Monsieur qui a du Souffle" is a comedic short film in which a Charlie Chaplin-like character blows everyone over (literally) with his horn. The silent black-and-white film from 1908 consists of various sketches in which the protagonist gets himself into multiple predicaments. Ultimately, his "power" turns against him, and he blows himself away.
