3 more songs for lulu

Next day, on April 27, Mark Tompkins arrives for another week working with me on new songs for his next piece "Lulu, une opérette de circonstance". During this intense working period at my studio we came up with 3 new songs: "it's time", "where is your force" and "too young to die". The piece will premiere in November at theatre Pole Sud in Strasbourg.
