M/P fragments

for eight parts choir (24 voices)
[2010] dur. 10′ ca.

I.    Acts of patience
II.   First reversal of the fear of being touched
III.  The Pack
IV.  Second reversal of the fear of being touched

The four fragments are based on some of the definitions of Power and Crowd behaviour explored in Elias Canetti’s “Masse und Macht”
Fragments II and IV are both concise settings of the statement “the reversal of the fear of being touched” – which is, according to Canetti, the essential characteristic of a crowd.

Le renversement de la phobie du contact
“The reversal of
 the fear of being touched
Umschlagen der Berührungsfurcht

written for Voix Nouvelles 2010 and Les Cris de Paris – Royaumont (FR).
