Naomi Pinnock

Oscillare For six singers, accordion and recorded text

2010/2011 (revised version)

Š 2011 Naomi Pinnock


Oscillare

Commissioned by Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival Written for Neue Vocalsolisten Stuttgart and Frode Haltli

2 Sopranos Mezzo-soprano Tenor Baritone Bass Accordion CD + Loudspeaker (activated by one of the singers)

Text by W.N. Herbert with short extracts taken from Der Zeuger (The Witness) by Jörg Burger (originally featured in Die Zeit Magazin 6.8.2009) Cycles of two superimposed texts give fragmented glimpses of two atrocities: one mythical (Erigone hanging herself from the tree under which she found the buried body of her father, Icarius) and one real (the massacre in Srebrenica in 1995, using extracts from an interview with a survivor). The antiphony of the vocal ensemble and accordion is interrupted each time by the recorded voice, until the repetitions break and there are no words left.

Icarius. Erigone. Recognition swinging… unripe fruit swinging in the trees tongues dark as plums… unready harvest buried in the earth bones dry as seeds © W.N. Herbert

————————— …out of the bus onto the meadow… in front of them lay rows, always twenty-five… everyone fell… the sun burned… from The Witness (Der Zeuger) by Jörg Burger, Die Zeit Magazin 6.8.2009
