Fragment of a piece in which I sing and play two amplified cactuses, keyboard and a hulusi (traditional Chinese flute).
Jimisme (2014) for soprano, bass clarinet and soundtrack was commisioned by soprano Andrea van Beek (Cappella Amsterdam) who premiered the piece on May 21st 2014 at the Rotterdamse Operadagen. The soundtrack was created using raw recordings of the, at times, wondrous, singing-like sounds produced by Andrea’s severely disabled son, Jim. The text was assembled by myself based on sketches written by Andrea. The piece reflects on their relationship in all its complexity and, at the same time, simplicity.
Latitude/Longitude for harp and percussion was commissioned by Duo Harpverk (Iceland) and the NFPK. The premiere took place in Reykjavik in March 2016.
