Life : for a cappella octet / May Lyon.

Library shelf no. 782.55542/LYO 1 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

Life starts from single celled life forms and ends with an array of larger creatures. Also included is plant life, represented by the sound of wind. Using a combination of strict time keeping and articulation through to improvisation the performers can express both the interdependence and freewill found in nature.

This is not meant to be a complex work, but more an expression of the simplest definitions for "life".
