Un regard éloigné (2008) for flugelhorn and cello is dedicated to Claude Lévi-Strauss on the occasion of his 100th birthday. The work was commissioned by Musik Fabrik.

The title refers to Lévi-Strauss’s 1983 book Le regard éloigné (The View from Afar). It is a brief, atmospheric work that explores the unfolding of gentle melodic cells, colored with the distinctive timbre of the flugelhorn and cello natural harmonics.
