General information

Jardin Secret I is an electro-acoustic piece originally composed for 4-track analogue tape. Below is the sound file for the stereo version.


IMPORTANT: in recent MacOS versions, there is a known issue when downloading

Max standalones through browsers (such as Safari, etc.)

Before to download, one needs first to go to ‘System Preferences/Security & Confidentiality/General’

and check ‘Authorize the applications downloaded from: anywhere’.

If you do not do it, the system will display a misleading message saying that the ‘file is damaged’.

You just need to change the security parameters as described above, then restart the standalone.

Technical requirements

Performance notes

The general level should be rather loud, but not painfully so.
