Work Overview

This work is a dedication to Scott Walker and his contribution to the idea of song in during the change of millennia. The title is a phrase from his song The Electrician, written for his band The Walker Brothers' in 1978. The Theremin is used in place of Walker's voice, reflecting aspects of his tenor range such as his vibrato and clear tone, reframing the song as a concerto.
