Mum Hum
2021
for clarinet, saxophone, 2 vocal performers
premiered by Ensemble Garage Köln, Nina Guo, Mauro Hertig
radio program for Wittener Tage für Neue Kammermusik 2021
Duration 10 min
score

Mum Hum is a musical game taking the soundscape of an unborn fetus as its base. Immersed in liquid, the unborn is surrounded by the sounds of blood, air and digestion, originating from the body that surrounds it. Mumbled speech arrives only after being filtered through the thick layers of the carrying womb. The musicians recreate that constellation by imitating each other – via the mumbling and error-prone transmission of a tin can-telephone.

The Great Mirror

2S/2A/2T/2B
premiered by les Métaboles, Léo Warynski
as part of the Academy Voix Nouvelles of the Royaumont Foundation
Duration 12 min
score

The Great Mirror recreates the making of the encyclopedia of the same name by friar Vincent de Beauvais (1184/94-1264, Royaumont Abbey). His struggle to contain all information about the world in a single work is what serves as the core of this vocal piece for eight voices. It takes its immediate surroundings as its content (local animals, architecture of the concert venue, singers, audience, local music history) and takes varying systems of order to structure them. By exposing the processes of memory and summary on stage, the mechanisms of history become tangible. They are flawed, but ultimately the only measures to conserve what, according to de Beauvais, is “worthy of contemplation (speculatio), that is, admiration or imitation”.
