Information for the Audience: 

This film was a collaboration between three artists, including myself. The pieces of stained-glass explore different ways to portray the music visually. The evolution of the

musical structure is followed by the animal shapes morphing into each other. In addition, the contrast between each part

is portrayed by a specific species who shared the same characteristics as those invoked by the music. 

The title comes from the fusion of two words originally in french "faun" which refers to the different animals present in the

film and "phonetic" which, in this case, resonate with both the language of the music and the communication between the wildlife.
