Programme Note
Very little perhaps nothing was written for le Nouvel Ensemble Moderne for the new music course at Domaine Forget. The tile comes from the poem Known knowns by Michael Robbins.

Known knowns
— Michael Robbins

Very little perhaps nothing
is known about boats.

I was never bitten
by a radioactive pony.

I believe we lack
a public health system
per se.

The world’s tallest freestanding smokestack
is in Sudbury, Ontario.

Lights at the top make it
scrutable to aircraft.

We’re waiting to de-fern.
