Berceuse et Jeux (2013)
for soprano, violoncello, and contrabass


UC San Diego Premiere on January 18th, 2013 by Sara Perez, Soprano; Judith Hamann, Violoncello; Tommy Babin, Contrabass.

This work is based on the experience of having a lucid dream. It is a lullaby that continuously deconstructs its own words. The nonsensical text is drawn from a pool of words that have a pleasing spectral profile as well as evoking particular sensations and imagery. Subzero, Violet, Jeux, Luminescent, Violence.
