Synopsis

A setting of the eponymous Cummings poem (no. 53 in the 100 Poems project.)

Both the soprano and violin make use of extended techniques. For voice: unvoiced sounds and stylized aspirations. For violin: slapping the body of the instrument, col legno bowing, and bowing the bridge.

This fast-paced work also make use of both standard durational notation as well as time-notation.
