GENERAL PERFORMANCE DIRECTIONS:

Many of the techniques in this work are employed explicitly to destabilize or distort the timbral qualities of each instrument, and thus require relatively detailed notation. Once the performers understand the character and intent of these techniques and their context within the work, it may be possible (and preferable) to play more freely within this syntax with a more organic, or even improvisatory character. The performance should not be constrained or adhere too rigidly to what is written on the page, but rather flow fluidly and naturally. CONDUCTOR: Barlines serve only as a means for synchronization; in performance, bars, bar division, or event numbers should not be noticeable. Beginnings of bars do not necessarily indicate stress, this occurs only where accents or sforzati are prescribed. In the sections marked “Senza Tempo” events are organized using numerical indications with arrows. These should be managed by the conductor by using a standard, unobtrusive beat pattern, e.g. four events will be treated like a measure in 4/4, 5 events in 5/4, and so on, effectively with a fermata on each beat. The conductor then controls the length of each event, reacting to how much time is taken by the singers and instrumentalists to perform the material and prescribed durations where applicable. This allows for a great deal of freedom and for measures to be easily stretched or made more compact based on the conductor and ensemble’s preferences and manner of playing.

OTHER MARKINGS: All passages inside event boxes are to be repeated ad libitum with a consistent pulse that is independent of the ensemble’s pulse. These are accompanied by additional instructions, such as accel. or decel., change of pitch, bow pressure, regularity, etc. DYNAMIC & TEMPORAL INDICATIONS: All dynamic markings should be considered relative, indicating the extremes of each instrument while utilizing a given technique. For example, the maximum amplitude (dynamic level) possible with an artificial harmonic is lower than that of a normally fingered pitch, or a whisper is naturally softer than a spoken text. Similarly, lateral bow motion is much softer than vertical (up/down) bow motion; some multiphonics are softer than others, air tones and other extended techniques might be softer or louder, etc., so it should be understood that the dynamics indicated apply to the upper and lower dynamic range of whichever particular technique or context within which it exists. In the same way, all temporal indications, such as accel. or decel. markings (below), are completely relative to the rate of rearticulation directly preceding or succeeding the indication. If there is no rate specified, it is left up to the discretion of the performer to determine a musically appropriate interpretation. Additionally, very soft techniques may be compensated through electronic means by selectively raising the amplitude of one instrument on a measure-by-measure or event-by-event basis. The alto flute is written in G and sounds a Perfect Fourth lower than written. The bass clarinet is written in Bb, and sounds a Major Ninth lower than written. The baritone saxophone is written in Eb, and sounds a Major Thirteenth lower than written (1 octave + a Major Sixth) The electric guitar is written in C and sounds one octave lower than written.

There is certainly some information that has been omitted from this initial draft of the score, so please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions at: jasontbuchanan@gmail.com


NOTATION FOR VOICE: Individual vocal parts need not always be synchronized precisely between one another, the rhythms indicated exist rather as approximate simultaneities or suggestions for temporal placement, but are governed by the character and flow of each individual phrase and text. Because of this, there is great freedom built into the possible interpretation of the work. The score therefore is a guide or point of departure and is not meant to be executed verbatim; it is one possible realization of the event streams that make up the skeletal structure of the work. There should always be a sense of fluidity or elasticity in the interpretation of the notated rhythms. This applies to vocalizations in the instrumental parts as well. Parenthetical dynamic markings refer to the intensity of the breath in unvoiced sounds (whispering, etc.); an (ff) can therefore be balanced by a voiced p or even pp. Whispering should in general be executed very intensively (“stage whisper”); where (fff), (ff) or (f) is prescribed, a strong stream of breath is to be used; at (p) and (pp) the intensity of the breath depends on two factors: 1) If voiced sounds occur simultaneously in another voice, the unvoiced sounds must be sufficiently intensive so as not to be completely covered. 2) The acoustics of the room and the noise level of the audience are decisive; (p) and even (pp) must still be clearly audible. Only at the designation “niente” should the whispering become inaudible. The entire piece should be performed very expressively, at places with exaggerated expressiveness and correspondingly heightened mime and gesture (this applies above all to the singers). The barred and “senza tempo” sections are to be performed in an equally free manner; since the bar lines serve only as orientation for synchronization, no essential differentiation should be made between the character of the “senza tempo” and that of the “a tempo”. To fully realize the expressive and dramatic nature of the piece, it is recommended that the singers perform their parts from memory. It is possible that passages with complex rhythms or difficult text may be sung with the aid of strategically placed printed scores, digital tablets, or projections only visible to the singer.

Singing voice

Speech-song (“Sprechgesang”) with fixed pitches

Speaking voice with changing pitch

Murmuring (“mezza voce”), as high as possible

Breathing (unvoiced but very intensive)

Speaking voice (narrow range or monotone)

murmuring, as low as possible

inhaling

Gradual transition from singing, to speech-song, to speaking

Speech-song with changing, but not fixed pitches. (Horizontal line corresponds to middle register of the singer.)

speaking voice, as high as possible (falsetto for baritone)

murmuring, various pitches

speaking voice, as low as possible

unvoiced sounds (whispering)

exhaling

gradual transition from speaking, to murmuring, to whispering

Glottal stops, always accompanied by a specific phoneme o = small circle above or below an otherwise voiced sound indicates that the sound is unvoiced | desonorisation: a voiced sound becomes unvoiced, vice versa


WINDS: Alto Flute:

Black diamond shaped noteheads indicate a sealed embouchure. Notes that extend above the typical range of the instrument are intended to be extremely aspirated and “airy” or percussive, in other words the flutist should “shoot for” the prescribed pitch. Figuration such as in bar 26-27 is prescriptive rather than descriptive, and should result in a gradual microtonal slide. The tremolo in bar 57 should be extremely, extremely soft and as airy/unstable as possible. The tremolo should destabilize the pitch center so that it is nearly indefinite pitch.

Clarinet/Bass Clarinet:

VOCALIZATIONS: Vocalizations in the bass clarinet part are given on a three line staff indicating the approximate vocal range of the performer, or marked ad libitum. The prescribed contours and registers should be observed as accurately as possible, though much detail is left up to the discretion of the performer, keeping in mind the character of the work and musically appropriate gestures. The scratch tone symbol when it appears in the clarinet part indicates distortion of the clarinet tone by the voice and/or throat and embouchure, often accompanied by a pitch contour for the voice as well. It is important that the voice is never completely exposed, but only coloring or modulating the tone of the clarinet. When modulation with the voice occurs, do not be concerned with adhering to the notated pitch with accuracy; the distortion and sum/difference tones drastically alter the sounding pitch. “ngh” indicates a low, guttural vocalization, like clearing your throat.

A high register vocalization, distorting the clarinet with a rising then falling contour.

MULTIPHONICS: Nearly all of the multiphonics utilized in this work (with the exception of 84b), are taken from Harry Sparnay’s book “The Bass Clarinet” (Periferia Music, ISBN: 978-84-938845-2-9) and are numbered accordingly. The fingerings shown are the same as are given there, though the pitch material notated is a product of my own sampling and spectral analysis of each of these multiphonics. “Multiphonic Fades” begin from the fundamental and gradually add the additional pitch content before fading back, as fluidly as possible.

CLARINET ARTICULATIONS: Slap tongue

Quasi-slap tongue

z Distortion of tone with voice/throat

TRILLS/TREMOLOS/BISBIGLIANDOS: CLARINET:

Bisbigliando or timbral trill, typically on a multiphonic (fingering provided). This results in a subtle timbral change using alternative/auxiliary fingerings less than a sixth-tone difference in pitch.

Baritone Saxophone:

MULTIPHONICS: Nearly all of the multiphonics utilized in this work are taken from Marcus Weiss’ online resources for saxophone and are numbered accordingly. “Multiphonic Fades” begin from the fundamental and gradually add the additional pitch content before fading back, as fluidly as possible.

PERCUSSION/PIANO: Percussion:

Bass Drum, Snare Drum (upside down), Thunder Sheet+Chain w/kick pedal, Bongos, Low Tom, Tam-Tam, 4 Woodblocks, 1 Sus. Cym., 1 China Cym., 2 Opera Gongs (alt. Thai), Spring Drum, Hard Wooden Surface, Flower Pot, Brake Drum, Metal Plate (alt. Pipe), newspaper metal canister, bow, hard yarn mallets, sticks

Piano:

The piano part extensively utilizes a “ceramic cup or metal plate” such as a ramekin, metal canister, or scrap metal. Please observe that when used inside the piano it is intended to be scraped laterally up and down a set group of strings, in other words it is not brushed across the strings. The lowest three strings should be prepared with magnetic tape, which can be found in any standard cassette tape, or VHS if necessary. The strings are activated by rubbing the tape with one hand while held taught by the other hand. Stockings filled with dry rice or beans are suggested for damping/weights where indicated. Amplification will be increased on a case-by-case basis in the Max/MSP patch for very soft techniques, such as the opening magnetic tape friction.


STRINGS: Electric Guitar: Solid or semi-hollow body electric, (humbuckers preferable to single-coil). Electro-harmonix “Big Muff” or comparable distortion/drive/fuzz pedal, DigiTech Whammy pedal, EQ pedal, Chromatic Tuner (visible), Noise Suppressor, Volume Pedal, Amp Head. Bass bow, rosin, sponge, wooden honey spoon (dipper), glass slide. Guitar should lay flat on a table of suitable height to play with fingers, bow, and various objects. The above pedals should be accessible and visible. The output from amp should be sent primarily to the master audio interface, which will be processed further in Max/MSP and sent out for amplification. Very little sound should come directly from guitarist’s amplifier, so as to properly balance the ensemble from the mixing console using input output from Max/MSP. Transposition & Scordatura Tuning: The electric guitar sounds one octave lower than written. Strings should be tuned to the following: 64.5Hz (C n ), 65.5Hz (C n ), 103.83Hz (G # ), 120Hz (B d ), 196Hz (G n ), 329.63Hz (E n , standard pitch). CHOREOGRAPHIC CLEF: Indicates position of object (bow, sponge, hand, honey spoon, etc.) in relation to length of string/body. Top line of staff is bridge, bottom line is top nut at headstock, center line is highest fret. Notation in treble clef is always sounding pitch transposed by one octave. Passages where precise pitch is crucial will include tablature given the scordatura tuning of the guitar.

Violin & Cello: NOTEHEAD TYPES: Diamond noteheads indicate harmonics (natural or artificial). Triangular noteheads: indicate the highest possible (or practical) pitch/location that can be achieved. Square noteheads with single or double slash marks indicate slow bow speed with lateral motion for the strings, or a soft, breathy/air tone that has very little definite pitch for the clarinet. Triangle noteheads that are open rather than closed (black), indicate a harmonic as high up the string as possible (often followed by a gliss/port.) Any type of half-filled notehead (triangular or diamond) indicates a “half-press,” the finger pressure being somewhere between that of a harmonic and a normal tone. “X” noteheads or regular noteheads with X slashes: always indicate a noise or indefinite pitch element; a scratch or semi-scratch tone, col legno, slap tongue, etc., dependent upon the precise indication. These often occur at the end of a phrase, indicating a “dead stroke”; meaning that the bow should suddenly stop the string, or the embouchure should suddenly seal.

BOW PRESSURE/LOCATION: Semi-scratch tones, medium bow pressure, very little definite pitch.

Full-scratch tones, high bow pressure, no definite pitch whatsoever.

Gradual increase of bow pressure to scratch, followed by gradual decrease of bow pressure.

An additional staff above each part indicates the lateral position of the bow on the instrument. The center line represents a normal (ORD) position, with the upper line representing the bridge (ASP) and the lower line the fingerboard (AST). ASP: Alto Sul Ponticello, very close to the bridge. SP: Sul Ponticello ORD: Ordinario ST: Sul Tasto AST:Alto Sul Tasto, well above the fingerboard. h. sul pont -- Bow near the bridge, constantly adjusting the bow position, speed, and pressure ad libitum to emphasize different harmonics and drastically alter the timbre. DIAGONAL BOW POSITION: Nearly parallel to strings, with sufficient bow pressure to achieve a very rich and unpredictable harmonic spectrum. This is often accompanied by rotational bow motion and arpeggiation of multiple strings, notated using tablature for the location of the bow over each string. ON BRIDGE: Bowing directly on the bridge, or bowing diagonally with the bow nearly parallel to the strings, it may be possible to bow both the bridge and strings simultaneously.

CHOREOGRAPHIC CLEFS: Lateral motion up and down the fingerboard with only bow. String tablature, I, II, III, IV.

Reverse position of hand & bow, lateral motion with both bow and hand. Bow Position (ASP, SP, ORD, ST, AST, etc.)

HARMONICS: A circled number indicates a specific partial in the harmonic series and corresponds to the location of the written diamond notehead. For strings, this typically indicates a natural harmonic located at a particular node on an open string. For the bass clarinet, this number may be an approximate upper target when overblowing. Many of the passages employ arpeggiation of all four strings on natural harmonics, with these numbers indicating the position on all four strings that can be barred.


HUNGER A MULTIMEDIA OPERA IN FOUR PARTS

LIBRETTO BY DARCIE DENNIGAN PART III

Note: The man in Sult is split in two. Oumenos, the baritone, is his outer, public self. The nameless soprano is his inner self. The outer man seems to be a slave to the inner one’s pride. The cry of the man in Baudelaire’s “Heautontimoroumenos” might well be Oumenos’ own cry: “She's in my voice, the termagant! All my blood is her black poison!” Yet the inner self is a slave to the body. Most of the stage direction here is for the outer self, the baritone. The soprano has been given very little movement direction because her interaction is solely with Oumenos. However, her movements/staging could be quite dynamic. OUTLINE OF SCENE SKETCH FOR DARMSTADT CONTEMPORARY OPERA WORKSHOP AND THE INDUSTRY’S FIRST TAKE – ( PART III, SCENES 1 & 2): Oumenos is scribbling. He has no paper and may be scribbling on a wall, telephone pole, a piece of newspaper, or his own skin. When he writes, he has moments of stillness and of wildness. He turns suddenly sober and then stops writing when he sees from the corner of his eye children sitting in a doorway, eating bread. He begins walking swiftly across the stage, in a slightly odd fashion, eyeing the children all the while. He wants the bread badly and considers stealing it from them. He is then disgusted with himself for considering such a thing. He feels the desire for the bread and the self-disgust both very strongly. He begins to bark at the children. Perhaps by barking he can get them to run away and leave the bread. Or perhaps he barks because his higher mind has recalled the line from Matthew: It is not meet to take the children's bread and cast it to the dogs. Because of such base thought and behavior, he is the dog. He goes to grab the bread from the children with his right hand (his writing hand). As he does so, the soprano, his inner self, violently bites his hand (or alternatively, he bites or strikes himself). He is both dog and master. As he crouches, hurt, Ylajali steps out from the butcher shop and throws a pile of bones for stray dogs onto the sidewalk. She doesn't see him, or maybe if she does, he seems a dog to her at that moment. She disappears into the shop’s backroom. He has recognized her. Earlier in the piece, each time Oumenos has tried to sell something from his body for money, he has encountered Ylajali. At the bloodbank, Ylajali drew his blood. At the spermbank, she coaxed his orgasm. Etc. Oumenos stands, rapidly jerks his head around to see who is watching him and, holding his injured arm, enters the shop. He decides that he will place an order, as any normal customer would. He calls into the backroom. Throughout this scene, Oumenos' inner self fights his urges. He wants to eat the meat arrayed before him. And he wants Ylajali, as if she were meat, but also as if she were exalted-- a muse? He wants to fight his coarseness, his hungers, and appear presentable, normal. He also wants to satisfy his hungers. Ylajali recognizes Oumenos. She mostly sticks to her countergirl conversation, and a countergirl way of flirting, though she also feels much of what he isn't saying aloud (i.e., what the soprano is saying). There is some intimation of her inner life through a few lines that are asides, like "mica of crushed glass." Oumenos and Ylajali do have a moment that is exalted: when they share their inner names. As the scene goes on, his base part wins out and he finds himself examining her on the counter as if she were meat. Does he really do this, or does this happen only in his mind? I think it could go either way. Certainly, he feels humiliated by his inner self, and by Ylajali and so in turn humiliates the girl. He has again become, in his mind, a dog. Ylajali in the end is all tenderness, as if she were a willing participant in the degradation, or as if she were unaware that he wanted her in that way. She completes the butcher shop transaction. Does she really give him her own toes? Or is that only in his head? I leave this to the singers and director.

LIBRETTO BY DARCIE DENNIGAN PART III

Description

INNER SELF, Soprano

YLAJALI, mezzo-soprano

OUMENOS, baritone (outer self)

PART III SCENE 1: OUMENOS is scribbling underneath a streetlight. He has no paper and may be scribbling on a wall, telephone pole, a piece of newspaper, or his own skin. His forehead leans against the wall as he writes. OUMENOS barks at the children watching him. OUMENOS scrambles to fetch the bread crumb. As he reaches for the bread, his INNER SELF bites his hand. OUMENOS crouches, hurt, YLAJALI steps out from the butcher shop and throws a pile of bones for stray dogs onto the sidewalk. She doesn't see OUMENOS, or maybe if she does, he seems a dog to her at that moment. She disappears into the shop’s backroom. Measure 14 calling into the backroom to INNER SELF YLAJALI enters behind a counter or table, looking directly at him.

It is not meet to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs.

(barking, growling)

It is not meet to take the children's bread. It is not meet… (barking, growling) It is…

I paused. (then through the doorway, into the butcher’s shop…) I held my right arm in my hand as if it were

Meat.

the chops in the case. the sausage hanging on pegs. Which to--

that is a minor question!

And flanks. Which flank… Had I invented that word? Flank. It quivered, it was full of import

PORK… (timidly, nervously, uncertain of what he's really seeing)

(more real than the chops in the countercase) concerned

and there was the counter girl offering me her mouth

Sir?


She recognizes him. He does not recognize her. Or rather, he recognizes a figure from his fantasies and is confused to find her… real. (unintelligible small talk) [Hello, yes, can I, what, sir, OK, etc.] Measure 38 (Ylajali: restrained – behaving naively, perhaps putting on her apron, dusting off the counter, straightening things that don’t need to be straightened, etc. – flustered, deliberately not looking at him. The sexuality of the lines should not be overplayed, as doing so diminishes the possibility of real sexual tension in the scene.)

talking, only talking… and there she was, as if she recognized me, turning to blush… she turned and there was only her ear and her delicious

(in response to baritone, turning back, composing herself)

You

No…

(Ylajali is somewhat startled by this outburst)

FLANK

Cow or pig? (*an earnest question; as she is saying it, she is becoming noticeably self-conscious and aware that it could be meaningful in other ways)

her lips the color of

BEEFSTEAK

Measure 48 (it was the girl from the spermbank) As an aside

Beef then With a mica of crushed glass Unless Yes?

Measure 52

(hadn’t I thought (yesterday?) that her lips were the color of…)

Yesterday you said my cheeks were the color of Yes Shhh

Had we met? Had we…she… that was not her.. that was not… meet (How much I’d rather sit still looking at her…)

Unless you've something better to offer? cum But we've never met Yes?

Shh… (This flickering at night…)

was she offering me her mouth?... Yes? (INNER SELF leans in very close to YLAJALI-- whispers in her ear as if to suggest what to say next?) PART III, SCENE 2 (YLAJALI begins to take off her apron, climb atop the counter to sponge herself, very chastely, shyly) (only the INNER SELF hears her, not OUMENOS)

The whisperings of the blood, the prayers of the bone…?

Sometimes I hear…

Yes? Yes?

(silence) Yes. First I must wash… (In the casing of my thoughts…) Yes! The skin is an admirably calculated machinery for restraining the consciousness it encases.


(interrupting, turning from INNER SELF toward YLAJALI) (calling on himself, OUMENOS, to return to scene in outer world) [But… Sir… my puntarella… my marmalata… my chubby little offal… Sir…]

(Speaking to OUMENOS now, getting in between him and YLAJALI, who is now lying, somewhat clothed, on the counter) Baritone takes out a notepad, scribbles down something said by soprano

If the material encasement be coarse & simple… (frustrated) They buried the hunger artist along with his straw and in what had been his cage they put a young panther…

(simultaneously) They buried the hunger artist along with his straw and in what had been his cage they put a young panther…

(These kabobs of chatter) These immediate products are but infallible indices of greatness…

These kabobs of chatter…

Not sausage, not tenderloin, but: the martyred breast of an ancient strumpet… The piss of hogwash… I keep returning to the miry path… To thinking belong the movement as well as the arrest of thoughts…

[a goat falls off a mountain, a donkey is consumed by bees…buzz…] [do you have goat heart… stung donkey flank…? a bone to gnaw…] (to INNER SELF)

Arrest, arrest!

[her apron now hung upon its peg] [revolting]

Shhh No: after long negotiations we will tell each other our names...

(YLAJALI hears this and stands on the counter)

Ylajali

Hers, (I said, was) Ylajali it had a gliding sound… divorced from any body Mine, she said, was

Oulomenos

She did not explain… Her mouth opened and moaned…her uvula flicking with o's… If I were to take the knife and (cut out her ululating parts)

Cut out your ululating parts Ylajali…!


(YLAJALI lies down on counter again)

She lay down Flesh crept up to cover her clothes, enfolded her groin… she was.. And I… a rich man before his rich sauce…

as softly as Dryope turning into a lotus Dryope

I distill the eternal from the transitory

Ylajali!

Afterward…would she wrap herself in butcher paper…?

Ylajali…

In her mouth my tongue became grotesque Oumenos (A separation again— A cash register or external sound--OUMENOS is living one scene—a transaction in a butcher shop (?) and the INNER SELF is living a more intimate transaction.)

Perhaps INNER SELF has a meat cleaver in hand now? Or a fork? Director may decide whether YLAJALI is really there lying on the counter or whether she is conducting a more normal transaction with OUMENOS

Goat heart! Merchant!

Her breasts (can I see your breasts)

The breast meat

Her pre-slaughter eyes

On lamb chops mint jelly goes best

She lay before me… (on the counter… for inspection…)

(a slab)

(the intelligent poor individual was a much finer observer than the intelligent rich one…) to herself INNER SELF steps between YLAJALI and OUMENOS (they both say this to S? perhaps Y sees S in some way, perhaps they say this at the same time, or perhaps staggered?)

And the lamp is very good (this is no light fed by cleric)

(a rich man in pause before his rich sauce)

Look at yourself! I did… (pause?)

to OUMENOS

You are lucky I’ve such a discerning eye…

Dead hair on your shoulders! Dead skin crusted on your sleeves


Humiliated, to Ylajali INNER SELF is taunting OUMENOS, while YLAJALI is trying to coax him back to a lighter scene

I… I… (Had I been wiping my eyes?) I!I!I! the filthiest of the pronouns The lice of thought

The lightest of thoughts

(B retreats to corner of shop like shamed dog?)

My desk… (CHOP…) (biting his finger)

Mange…! Mange…!

My thumb instead of an onion!

After long negotiations, I am become a dog eating its own skin… Woof (CHOP…) I am the mites on the skinbiting mongrel (moved by Y’s tenderness?)

Mongrel!

Shhh… (I meant light as a bird, not as a feather…) Shhh… A collar then, a collar and …morsels

Woof Ylajali!

She was offering me a packet of meat wrapped tidily by her tiny fingers The meat was her toes… her own toes… She’d have to take goat hooves from the waste pile to stand on (B could easily be accepting a small packet of scrapmeat from her)

It’s no inheritance, no goodluck charm

Took them… I took them… to suck on as I worked…

I will take them To suck on as I work Ylajali!

Ylajali does not have toes Ylajali is too pure… for a body

(offering him things)

But how will you (But I…)

And with what tenderness was she now chopping off her own thumb For me Her own thumb How beautiful you are now

If you smear yourself with ox marrow--

Or shower in this phial of dew--The moon will suck you up…

But… She was too pure Ox marrow!

For me? How beautiful

Libretto by Darcie Dennigan

Part III - for The Industry FIRST TAKE Workshop, Los Angeles

(OUMENOS is scribbling underneath a streetlight. He has no paper and may be scribbling on a wall, telephone pole, a piece of newspaper, or his own skin. His forehead leans against the wall as he writes. Moments of stillness and of wildness.)

HUNGER A MULTIMEDIA OPERA IN FOUR PARTS

PART III BY JASON THORPE BUCHANAN LIBRETTO BY DARCIE DENNIGAN

CREATION & SYNOPSIS: Knut Hamsun’s novel Sult is a point of departure for a libretto by award-winning poet Darcie Dennigan, exploring themes of psychological decay, irrationality, and self-destruction. Oumenos is a starving and delusional young writer who is unwilling to compromise his work even as his intellect and body gradually deteriorate. He is split in two; the baritone and soprano form a composite, each depicting aspects of his inner/outer selves and suppressed madness. His hunger and self-disgust lead him to consider stealing bread, and to thoughts of self-mutilation. He despises his baseness. He is a dog. He is drawn to Ylajali, a young girl who appears to him in various manifestations. At the bloodbank, Ylajali draws his blood. At the spermbank, she coaxes his orgasm. In a butchershop, Ylajali as countergirl displays the meat before him. He fights his coarseness and hungers to appear presentable, normal. He finds himself examining her on the counter as if she were meat. Humiliated by his inner self, and by Ylajali, he in turn humiliates her. He has again become, in his mind, a dog. The complete opera in four parts is being composed over the course of 2014-2016 through residencies in the U.S., Italy, Germany, and Norway. The first completed scene of the opera (Part III, Sc. 1) was selected for the Internationales Musikinstut Darmstadt Contemporary Opera Workshop and premiered August, 2014 in an acoustic version for three singers, alto flute, bass clarinet, percussion, piano, violin, and cello. This ensemble has been augmented by the inclusion of electric guitar, baritone saxophone, live electronics, video projection of both live capture and pre-recorded film. Part III has been performed at The Industry’s FIRST TAKE Opera Workshop in Los Angeles (2015) with wild Up, and the MATA Interval 8 Series in New York City (2015) with the [Switch~ Ensemble]. The score, electronics, and video for Parts 1, 2, and 4 will be composed over a six month period including a three-month residency appointed by the City Council of Bergen, Norway at USF Verftet in Fall of 2015 with support from the American-Scandinavian Foundation, to be finalized in March of 2016. Our vision is a multimedia opera whose musical and dramaturgical narrative is driven not by dialogue or action, but rather psychological and musical states and situations that integrate video projection and electronics seamlessly, contextualizing the extremely fragmented music and text. While obfuscating much of the semantic content, this fragmentation and oscillation between intelligibility and unintelligibility demands a focus on phenomenological qualities and filmic subtlety, with physical, aural, and visual cues indicating context for the behavior of the singers and the interaction with their digital surroundings. Hunger breaks with operatic conventions by eschewing grandeur and dramaturgical coherence in order to explore the volatile city of one man’s psyche. Because its true subject is, as Hamsun described, “the delicate fluctuations of a sensitive soul, the strange, peculiar life of the mind,” its narrative threads are unclassifiable and non-contiguous within the confines of conventional logic, and its protagonist is splintered and psychologically erratic, with theatrical time that is compressed through multimedia into situations that are claustrophobically intimate, constantly in flux, and contradictory. It thus invites participants to construct and engage with a multiplicity of scenarios and readings. The edge of comprehensibility itself becomes a means of producing structural integrity and coherence while reflecting the central theme of psychological deterioration and fragility. Jason Thorpe Buchanan is an American composer of operatic, orchestral, chamber, and electroacoustic music. His works have been described as “an unearthly collage of sounds”, “sharply-edged”, and “free jazz gone wrong”, commissioned and performed internationally by conductors and ensembles such as Brad Lubman, Alan Pierson, Jean-Philippe Wurtz, Marc Lowenstein, Alarm Will Sound, Ensemble Interface (Germany), Ensemble Nikel (Israel), Ensemble Linea (France), Nonsemble 6, Iktus Percussion, the [Switch~ Ensemble], The Industry, wild Up, OSSIA, ensemble39, Brevard Music Center Orchestra, Fiati 5 (Italy), Sound ExChange Orchestra, Eastman Musica Nova Ensemble, BlueWater Chamber Orchestra, TAD Wind Symphony (Japan), among others. Nominated for the 2015 Gaudeamus Prize, his works will be presented by Insomnio, Nadar Ensemble, and Slagwerk Den Haag at Gaudeamus Muziekweek in September 2015. Scenes from his Multimedia Opera Hunger have received performances at the Darmstadt Contemporary Opera Workshop (2014) with Ensemble Interface, The Industry’s FIRST TAKE Opera Workshop in Los Angeles (2015) with wild Up, and the MATA Interval 8 Series in New York City (2015) with the [Switch~ Ensemble] on a concert of new works for Ensemble & Multimedia curated by the composer. Los Angeles Times critic Mark Swed writes: “Jason Thorpe Buchanan's Hunger is a kind of training session in mental disintegration… An ungodly opera needs ugly music, singers who produce primal sounds, an electric guitar that sounds scraped raw, a [sic] wailing orchestral effects, cuts the ear like a knife. Buchanan delivers.” Awarded a Fulbright Fellowship (2010-11) at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Hamburg (Germany) as a visiting scholar, he was recently selected as Artist-in-Residence by USF Verftet and the City Council of Bergen, Norway to complete work on Hunger in late 2015, with a grant from the American-Scandinavian Foundation. Additional honors and awards include the ASCAP Morton Gould Award (2014) & Howard Hanson Orchestral Prize (2014) for Asymptotic Flux: Second Study in Entropy (2013) commissioned by the Mizzou International Composers Festival for Alarm Will Sound, a commission from the International Horn Society & ASCAP Morton Gould Award (2015) for Double Concerto (2014) with soloists Jeff Nelsen, Mike Walker, and the Eastman Musica Nova Ensemble with conductor Brad Lubman, antistasis (2014) for the Tzlil Meudcan Festival (Tel Aviv) with Ensemble Nikel, oggetti 1 (2014) as composer-in-residence for Chamber Music Campania (Italy), both winner of the newEar 4th Annual Composer’s Competition (2013), and selection at the NYC Electroacoustic Music Festival (2014) for Asymptotic Flux: First Study in Entropy co-commissioned by the [Switch~ Ensemble] & OSSIA, 2nd place in the American Prize composition competition (2012) for Berlin Songs, commissioned by the German/American Fulbright-Kommission and premiered at the Akademie der Künste (Berlin) during the European Fulbright Conference, and winner of the 2014 International Iron Composer 5-hour composition competition in Cleveland. He has studied composition with R.Zohn-Muldoon, C.Sánchez-Gutiérrez, R.Morris, A.Schindler, D.Liptak, V.Baley, P.Michael Hamel, J.V.Grossmann, P.Furman, M.Stahnke, B.Lubman, G.Aperghis, B.Ferneyhough, R.Cendo, C.Czernowin, A.Read Thomas, H.Abrahamsen, P.Leroux, C.Gadenstätter, J.María Sánchez-Verdú, and P.Billone, among others. He is coordinator of the VIPA Festival’s Composition & Contemporary Music Program (Spain), from 2007-2012 served as founder and director of Melos Music, a composer’s consortium and concert series in Chicago, San Francisco, and Philadelphia. He has served as assistant conductor for Eastman’s Musica Nova Ensemble with conductor Brad Lubman and Graduate Teaching Assistant/Course Instructor for the Eastman Computer Music Center, as well as board member of Ossia and co-founder, conductor, and artistic director of the ECMC’s ensemble-in-residence, the [Switch~ Ensemble] as a Ph.D. candidate at the Eastman School of Music. Degrees in Composition and Music Technology from San José State University and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where he taught courses in composition and theory (2008-2010), with highest honors from both institutions. Current projects include Hunger, a multimedia opera with libretto by award-winning poet Darcie Dennigan, Eklekto Geneva Percussion Center (Switzerland, 2015), a work for Andrew J. Allen (saxophone), electronics, and video (World Saxophone Congress, Strasbourg, 2015), a work for Peter Ferry (percussion) and electronics (Chicago, 2016), a commission from the New York Virtuoso Singers (NYC, 2015), a commission for the Blue Water Chamber Orchestra as winner of Iron Composer 2014 (Cleveland, May 2015), and a commission for Slagwerk Den Haag to be premiered at Gaudeamus Muziekweek (Netherlands, Sept. 2015).
