About the work

The verses are an exploration of the title/keyword that appears above each verse (performers should consider the meaning of the word to experiment as much as possible). Text by E.E.Cummings

Technical notes

of 9 different verses plus a codetta. Each verse is s;lit into two sections: the first is in a box, this is improvised (based on suggestions in the box) the second is the stave aligned to the right of the box, this is set (should be performed exactly as written)
