* Tenors should enter individually in the first bar of the piece. One singer can be assigned to start and the others can follow like quasi-echoes (depending on the standing arrangement, subsequent singers can come in spatially). After each singer has held "was" for about 4-6 seconds they can move onto the next bar. This second bar should be repeated, choosing one of the two grace note options (from above or below) preceding "was" on each re-entry. Another embellishment option is added in m. 6. Each time sinegrs repeat "she was" they may vary the rhythm, tempi, and exact length that "was" is sustained. The desired overall effect should be that of an active drone with an underlying, sparkling energy. Music © Katerina Gimon, 2021 | Text © Waad Tariq, 2017 (used by permission) www.katerinagimon.com

* Explanation for Speakers: • 4-8 speakers should recite (and repeat) one of the lines on the bottom of the following page to create the overall. sound of a cacophonous crowd. Recitation should begin loudly and dramatically, then gradually quiet and sparsen. • The audience need not be able to understand any individual, but rather pick out some words from the texture. • One Speaker should be assigned to begin first (right around m. 68, as notated) and the others can follow one by one, allowing a few words before entering/overlapping. This same order can be used as Speakers drop out one by one. • The second and third Speakers to enter should enter speaking the second half of their sentences so the common phrase phrase ("A code red...") isn't yet obvious. • The numbers with circles around them (beginning at m. 72) are a cue system that may be used (by holding up the given number of fingers) to show how many four-bar ideas are left before the unison B3 hum at m. 92. This will help Speakers keep track of where they are so they need not worrying about counting while reciting. 13
