Egg (EI) for six to twelve voices: three sopranos, three altos, three tenors, three basses, or less (2007, 8’)
First performance: Maastricht/The Netherlands, Intro In Situ, November 11th 2007, by Asko Kamerkoor (conductor Jos Leussink)
Ei (Egg) is a piece for six to twelve voices, a conductor and a soundtrack.
The material which is used in Ei is very rudimentary. Only by the interplay of voices, and the conductor’s continuous dedicated act of creation, shape and content are achieved.
The singers carefully carry their material around, like parents in a penguin colony.
