second song for many
About the work
“second song for many” is a sequel to “song for many” which was made in 2011 for the Edges Ensemble. In both works, the sound of speech is a part of the overall sound material, although the specific texts used are not required to be intelligible to an audience.
“song for many” is a loud piece, which uses a text from a consumer survey to be shouted by half the ensemble. “second song for many” is a quieter piece which uses a list of recently extinct species to create a more delicate atmosphere. A different song for a different many.
