'Illumbra' for Pique Angulated (Exemplum) Lyric Soprano



"Illumbra"...One word.  One text.  One Lyric.  To be interpreted and re-interpreted utilizing lexical semantics, orthological deduction and phonological interpretation;  while improvisatory, the method of realization also gives way to a refined chaos.

January 14, 2015.  Ellen Gyoni, Soprano performed this work for 71 minutes and 17 seconds. She interjected a phonetic juxtaposition at the end of the performance articulating the word "pal, pal, pal in...so sara drone."
