A master of ceremonies, a diva and a conductor [...] Two texts from Cantatrix Sopranica L. von Georg Perec [...] the one, a scientific investigation into the physiological sensitivities of singers in particular situations; the other, an obituary for the famous comic book character Leon Burb by Marcel Gotlib [...] spoken text and sung translation [...] one is amused by this happy collection of words and senses [...] all a question of the balance between the two worlds of Perec and Gotlib.
