This title, which refers to a giant planet discovered by astronomer Donald McCarthy of the University ofArizona, expresses Thérèse Brenet’s favorite image of the infinity of Time and Space. Planet V. P.8B is 21 lightyearsaway from Earth ; such a distance along suffices to encourage one to reflection.This cosmic reverie is emphasised by a fragment of Nietzsche’s poem Nocturne, the recitation of whichmay be inserted by the instrumentalists over the playing of the music.“Innumerable suns gravitate in deserted space; they speak through their light to all in the darkness.But I live in my own light. I drink the flames which shoot forth from me”The reverie is also expressed by the absence of a conclusion, characteristic of the work.
