There are several version of the project, the latest version was often performed by Feux Follets ensemble as a live improvised music: inside piano with electronics, performance and video.
Cyril is no more by Václav Vrobel (translated from Czech):
‘Always, when Cyril’s friends got the impression that he felt constricted, they sewed for him new, looser pants. In his twenty-six years he tragically lost himself in the right trouser leg and died of exhaustion. His body was never found.’
