Sh(k)
Semi-Sound Poem for Recorded Voice
for {AN} Eel
Legend:
--------------------> (maintain or hold given or emphatic syllable)
suggested tape loop option
chant-like, suggested tape loop option
… (pause/silence)
begin, but do not finish as if interrupted
letter(letter) (gradual change of sound syllable or
transformative syllable)
*performance instructions. Don't read aloud*
Composer Notes:
This piece is organic. It was written improvisationally and should be performed
as such. It is the intent of this piece to be first read in succession. Upon first
completion the performer may disassemble the sections as they chose. They are
lettered “a-k”. Duration is of no consequence. Tape looping of denoted sections
is encouraged.
Or one could do as they please, like I said this piece is organic and who are we
to stand in the way of nature?
