The bulk of the compositions on Étire dans le ciel vide are written for cello, violin, vibraphone, electric guitar, piano, and voices, a combination which resembles a traditional chamber ensemble while adding more contemporary sounds.
Lyrically, Étire dans le ciel vide examines the anxiety and isolation that is present in modern life, drawing from the poetry of 19th century French poet Paul Verlaine.
