...apropos of nothing
...apropos of nothing for Mezzo Soprano and Harpsichord c. 7'
In …apropos of nothing, I devised a way to introduce a metalevel of miscommunication; central to this idea is the unmeasured notation in the harpsichord. The use of free or highly variable durational scheme allows the performers to adjust both tempo and rhythm according to their spontaneous reaction. The text in the composition is of my creation based on ‘false friends’ from four different languages, to create an abstract narrative with no discernible meaning; in other words, apropos of nothing.
