The pieces featured on this website are the first generation of Huguette's recorded works. "Bits and pieces of these have been with me for some time, and in April 2015 I decided to formally present them as complete pieces.

Hugs, as she is known by her friends, does not notate her music, but, instead, uses a kind of shorthand so as not to forget the immediate. “Eventually the final performance is entirely in my head and fingers. Then, it is recorded and I move on to the next inspiration!" Nor does she replay them or memorize them, and can only perform the latest one live. Replaying the works would be improvisation.
