Synopsis

The eleventh work in 2014’s¬†100 Poems¬†project. Text by E. E. Cummings.

At just under 5 seconds in duration, this is the shortest work I’ve ever composed. The first voice has three words of text which are spoken intermittently while the second voice has a difficult and highly chromatic melody, on which she sings the remaining text of the poem.
