the caged bird sings‌ for mezzo-soprano, oboe and horn

2018

Score in C


Text se'ing In this piece, I imagine a dramatic response to American poet Maya Angelou’s Caged Bird: A free bird leaps on the back of the wind and floats downstream till the current ends and dips his wing in the orange sun rays and dares to claim the sky. But a bird that stalks down his narrow cage can seldom see through his bars of rage his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing. The caged bird sings with a fearful trill of things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on that distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom. The free bird thinks of another breeze and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees and the fat worms waiting on a dawn bright lawn and he names the sky his on. But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing. The caged bird sings with a fearful trill of things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on that distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom. “Caged Bird” from SHAKER, WHY DON’T YOU SING? by Maya Angelou Copyright © 1983 by Maya Angelou Used by permission of Random House, an imprint and division of Penguin Random House LLC. All rights reserved.

The text appears to already possess a ‘verse-refrain’ structure, which readily lends itself for songseFing. I have remained faithful to the original layout of Angelou’s text for most parts of the piece. However, I have decided not to repeat the refrain (‘The caged bird sings…’) per se at the end, in the spirit of maintaining a teleological narrative. In the first instance of the refrain (bb. 46–58), I removed the final word—‘freedom’—as a symbolic gesture; freedom cannot be not sung of. It is in this light that the listener subsequently arrives at the end of the penultimate stanza (‘…opens his throat to sing…’; b. 78), whose open-ended verbal syntax allows for a direct ‘splice’ into the final line of the refrain (‘…of freedom.’; bb. 80–83). This happens as the oboe and horn speed through bb. 77–80 with a desperate ‘caged bird’s tune’, which was previously properly sung in bb. 46–58. Imaginatively, this frees the caged bird of his ‘melodic baggage’, so he can move on to ‘sing of freedom’.

Note to future self I wrote this piece for three friends—Rosanna Cooper (mezzo-soprano), Flic Cowell (oboe), and Alexander Oon (horn)—who were taking the Contemporary Music in Action module (in Royal College of Music). I knew that they needed a piece intended for the purposes of examination (think ‘showcase’ of technical mastery), yet at the same time I wanted to find a reasonable purpose, or a kind of ‘contextual grounding’, for the use of extended instrumental techniques. Crudely speaking, I had at my disposal a physical human voice, an air column, and a coil of metal; the laFer two can be pushed to sound like distorted or ‘repressed’ voices. I pursued this thread and started from a somewhat oblique angle by sourcing for poems with themes such as ‘freedom’, ‘oppression’, ‘unheard voices’, etc. After rounding up several potentially suitable texts, Angelou’s proved particularly appealing, with the additional animated metaphor of a bird—two in fact; one caged (in whom I see Angelou) and the other free (possibly Angelou’s ideal image of herself). This offered numerous opportunities for the use of multiphonics. Singing into the horn reflects not only two sonic forces (horn’s voice and player’s voice) aFempting to overcome each other, but also a conceptual ‘caging' (trapping the player’s voice within the metallic instrument). Angelou’s text was simply calling out to be set. In allusion to the themes of ‘freedom’ and ‘oppression’, and also to the socio-political zeitgeist in which Angelou lived and breathed, I quoted the tune from ‘We Shall Overcome’, a gospel hymn turned protest song of the American Civil Rights Movement. The hymn becomes the ‘caged bird’s tune’, which the mezzo-soprano timidly sings in bb. 46–58, but does not complete the final line. Deprived of the final line’s melodic notes to set the remaining words, the singer is unable to ‘sing of freedom’.



Symbols used in notation Mezzo-soprano

Sprechgesang (at bb. 59–63, 76–78) : Aim for something between singing and speaking. Notes are not at definite pitches. The specified pitches (despite their accidentals) serve as a guide for vocal inflection and intonation.

Oboe Lip position:

tip of reed

just below heart

Lip pressure:

weak lip pressure

Air pressure:

weak air pressure

at string

strong lip pressure (biting)

Fingering diagrams, as well as symbols, have been indicated above the relevant multiphonics. Normal note-heads (e.g. b. 1) denote pitch to be sounded louder in multiphonics (as opposed to smaller note-heads).

tongue as quickly as possible

bisb. bisbigliando n.

normal (i.e. play normally, without fluFer-tongue or bisbigliando) (as in bb. 14–15)

Horn flz.

fluFer-tongue

t.t.

timbral trill

n.

normal (i.e. play normally, without fluFer-tonguing or timbral trill) (as in b. 20)

Diamond note-heads ( ) indicate notes to be sung. In this score (in C), these notes are wriFen at sounding pitch. In the part score, they have been transposed up a perfect fifth. (It may be helpful to think of them as though they are ‘played’ notes.)

Duration: ca. 6’00
