YousaidShesaidHesaid (2014-15)

for soprano and fortepiano

Created in collaboration with playwright Christopher Oscar Peña, director Austin Regan, and fortepianist Patrick Jones, YousaidShesaidHesaid juxtaposes modern perspectives with Schubert’s masterpiece song cycle Die Schöne Müllerin.

Written to be performed in rep with the classic work, YousaidShesaidHesaid traces the same timeline as Schubert’s work, but from the experience of the other character in the story, who until now has historically had no voice – the “girl of the mill” herself. Composed for a single female voice and the same period instrument used in Die Schöne Müllerin, the new work will also incorporate electro-acoustic elements and use sampling, live processing, and other digital technology.

FP: March 23, 2014 at HERE Arts Center in New York City and May 30, 2015 as part of VisionIntoArt’s FERUS Festival at Pioneer Works in Brooklyn, NY
