the abundance of breath explores a very fluid and 'instrumental' approach to the soprano and trumpet. There are moments when they merge into a single breathing, gasping, growling creature; others where they stalk each other with poetic sensuality and an unearthly grace. The text is highly colouristic and largely nonsensical, reminiscent of the 'imaginary languages' conjured in Kurt Schwitters "Ursonate", or György Ligeti's "Aventures".
Instrumentation: Soprano, trumpet (in C).
Duration: 10 min.
