AIR

for soprano, flute + live electronics



AIR is a component of The Four Elements, 4 duos, namely AIR, WATER, FIRE and EARTH, accompanied by live electronics.

The elements of nature are put into sound in four movements for voice and soloist; an important part is played by the electronics.

The musical material was also based on solos from Wim Henderickx’s work for music theatre VOID (SUNYATA) (2007).

AIR for voice and flute seeks to evoke purity and a higher concsciousness. The two voices set out as a rustle, turn to tonality, only to disappear again in a rustle.
