Hello Dave and Benoit!
   this is a fascinating mix. Live piano and cold, rendered electronics. 
There's a good contrast. The piano might have used a little more reverb to 
blend in fully with the electronics. On the other hand, the way it is now, the 
difference bcomes more pronounced. The difference between the "heartless" 
electronic atmosphere and the alive piano ontop.
   Arcis on its own would remind me of good film music. Perhaps for anice 
horror film or a thriller or sinister science fiction. With the piano it 
gravitates more towards early to mid 20th century contemporary music. I'm 
thinking of Schoenberg and even later composers. I'm sure, that there is a 
great difference in compositional techniques, but the basic atmosphere is 
there, wearing a more modern production.
   Both with and without piano, it's a nice scenic piece.
   Thanks the two of you for sharing!
   Warm regards
