for soprano und 6 percussionists (2015)
Texts by Pawel Adelgeim

Score

Recording 

Yulianna Vaydner, Soprano. Pascal Pons, Nick Reed, Percussion. 

A hyperrealistic Recording
The score is recorded part by part in a studio with only one musician at a time. The recording has therefore as many isolated tracks as musicians. Small passages are recorded, inaccuracies are corrected and assembled. The complete recording is placed in a virtual concert hall. The aim is to obtain a precise and transparent recording.

Commentary 

Pawel Adelgeim, russian clergyman and writer. He lived in Pskov and was murdered in 2013. In the time of soviet union, he was known as dissident and fighter for religious freedom. After the dissolution of the soviet union, he became a critic of the new relation between orthodox church and state..

Duration 

21 min

Instrumentation 

Soprano
6 real/virtual percussionists.

Percussion passages or even complete percussion parts may be replaced by electroacoustic percussion samples if
- percussion passages are too complex 
- the piece should be performed with less percussionists. 
In this case, a computer with Max/msp runtime software (www.cycling74.com), a small mixing device , a headset for the conductor and 2 - 4 loudspeakers are required. Please contact the composer.

Text 

Will
I lived like I wanted to
and died as best I could.
In this world, we are all guests.
In deathly gloom
Under stones and cross 
Rest in peace, bones.
My judges: i don‘t know,
My doctors: i forgive.

I replaced one evil by another. 
Leave the writings to the museum,
Shove my body into the coffin of saints
For ever and ever, Amen.

Завещание
Я прожил как хотел
и умер как умел.
Мы все в сем мире гости.
во мраке гробовом,
под камнем иль крестом
покойтесь мирно, кости.
Судей своих не знаю,
врачей своих прощаю.
Я клином вышиб клин.
В музей отдать бумаги,
а тело сунуть в раки
во век веков, аминь.
