EATING VARIATIONS for Baritone and Chamber Ensemble

billholabmusic.com


Program Notes Eating Variations is based on a series of poems with the same name by Ron Singer. The work as a whole is essentially a satire on food faddism and depicts different aspects of eating. The way I chose to set these poems is light-hearted, perhaps lighter in spirit than Singer originally intended, but with a serious, dark side. The first movement, My Body, a Temple, incorporates the sounds of Tibetan Singing Bowls (also called Temple Bowls or Cup Gongs) and is loosely inspired by Khöömei, or Tuvan Throat Singing and David Hykes’s Harmonic Choir recordings; both of whom use a style in which the singer produces overtones on top of the fundamental notes. Perhaps mercifully, I do not require the baritone to use this technique, but instead, use the flute to produce false overtones in a couple of spots in the beginning of the movement. In the second movement, The Hog, the instruments mimic pig sounds with scratchy, grunting noises from the violin and cello and clarinet multiphonics. A round-sounding whole-tone scale is used and there is a Polkalike accompaniment in the percussion. The third movement, Even the Dyspeptic Must Eat, uses upward and downward runs in the bass clarinet to impart a roller coaster-like sense of someone who has Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, a condition in which there is recurrent return of stomach contents back up the esophagus. This is reinforced with a slow, background dirge played by the drums. The cello part in the fourth movement, The Dietary Moralist, is inspired by Dave Eggar, a cellist who can play his instrument like a guitar and sing at the same time. In this movement, I ask the cellist to play in a somewhat folksy style and sing out of tune back-up vocals, reminiscent of a 1960s musical Hippie Sit-in. The main vocalist is backed by the well meaning but out of tune “band.” To paraphrase an interessting conversation with Singer, we agreed that in this context the vocalist might represent a contemporary version of a certain species of 60’s hippie—say, a particularly zealous fair trade coffee purveyor, and that this Malvolio type is singing along with a group of kindred spirits. This movement is not a literal portrayal of the text, which is quite serious in tone, and stretches the meaning more than the other movements. Perhaps my interpretation may be viewed more as commentary on the text. In each passing decade, people are sure of their eating habits, and the carefree, assured, commercial America of the 1950s was no different. In the last movement, The Happy Medium, I envision a father-like doctor figure squarely explaining to a patient how to eat. The perky background music is meant to evoke a 1950s TV commercial, or perhaps a short, black and white educational grade school film. – RP

Explanation of Notation General

( – long fermata & – short fermata , – brief pause , – very brief pause n

/´ – subito (when placed before a dynamic, i.e. / f ) – short staccato (staccatissimo) ^ – hard accent æ – tremolo Ÿ~ – indicates regular trills (a whole step or smaller) and wide trills (i.e. “trill tremolos”)

– niente

ú ì ≥ ≤

– bend note downward (if the direction of the bend is reversed, bend note upward)

– one quarter sharp – one quarter flat – downbow overpressure, i.e., heavy bowing so audible noise is added to the pitches – upbow overpressure

( ) – All markings in parenthesis are courtesy/cautionary markings.

Perusal Copy

• All grace notes (including beamed grace notes with slashes) are to be played immediately before the beat they proceed. They are to be played very close to the beat and as fast as possible.

• All accidentals last for the entire measure, unless they are canceled out by another accidental (such as a natural sign). Accidentals only apply to the line or space they are on.

Percussion – Mallet Pictogram Key Note: mallet pictograms may be preceded by numerals indicating the number of mallets being held and followed by modifier letters, i.e. P (plastic), R (rubber), etc. The number after each mallet indicates how many are neededfor this work.

= medium yarn mallets (2)

R = medium rubber mallets (2)

R = hard rubber mallets (2)

= drumsticks (2)

= triangle (beater pictogram not used in part or score)

Brushes also needed.


The Eating Variations By Ron Singer 1. My Body, a Temple Each day I dose myself with necessary nutrients: half a banana, for electrolytes and iron; several whole-grain items, providing essential roughage; and, hedging my bets, a measure of fats, same of carbohydrates; keeping the calories low, keeping the heartbeat slow, except on days of heavy exercise. Thus it is to eat and be wise. 2. The Hog Down, down, down to McDonald’s I go, there to wallow in tallow. Pleased with grease, I gorge on portions that creater distortions between me and lesser humanity. To eat, to eat, until I cannot see my feet. I greet you, and, if I could, I ‘d eat you, too.

Better to skip food and drink completely, but fasting, too, is a sin against reason, and might cause death, a sin against me. 5. The Happy Medium No cause for excess or alarm! A balanced diet, moderate, of delicious treats, well-prepared, neither avoiding nor overdoing any single food group, a little fish, a little meat, a modicum of soy and wheat, a glass of juice, a bowl of soup, abundant produce from the farm, apple, lettuce, cucumber, pear, a balance of oils with tasty fats, is the happy, modern way to eat.

3. Even the Dyspeptic Must Eat A necessary evil, to eat when it makes you ill, when even salad, stinted, dressed with lemon juice, requires a pill, which is, for you, an after-dinner mint. A little dish of pasta with a drop of olive oil, eaten slowly, comes back faster. Regardless of how I censor what I send down to my stomach and my guts, they groan and roil and send it right back up. 4. The Dietary Moralist Each bite I eat is taken from another mouth, each piece of meat costs the world a tree, diminishing biodiversity. Fruits and vegetables out of season, each cup of coffee, cocoa, tea, stretch the gap between north and south, exploiting third-world poverty.
