INSECT

By Michael Basinski


One long sound for one voice. The voice is
encouraged to engage the cult of poet as inspired
idiot prior to first breathe. Could be arranged
for multiple voices as band of idiots. Consume
air or gulp air at double letters only. Must create
sound on air intake. If sound line breaks, the
liner must begin again. The line is over when the
line is performed accurately start to finish.
Orchestrate tone, tempo, pitch etc. to taste.

LINE

By

Michael Basinski

Inspired by Line Book by W. R. H.

One long sound for one voice. The voice is

encouraged to engage the cult of poet as inspired

idiot prior to first breathe. Could be arranged

for multiple voices as band of idiots. Consume

air or gulp air at double letters only. Must create

sound on air intake. Audience is encouraged to

shout Failure! or Fraud! or Freud! if the line of

sound is broken or there is an imagination that it

broke. Or just for fun or to be antagonistic. If

broke, the liner must begin again. The line is

over when the line is performed accurately start

to finish. Orchestrate tone, tempo, pitch etc. to

taste.

All 50 States

For four voices.

The goal of the work is to recall from memory all 50 states in a form of order moving form one part of the United States to another. For example, one voice starts in Florida and remembers all states until the voice concludes in Alaska or Hawaii. Each voices starts in a different part corner of the country.


All four voices begin on cue and conclude when finished. The state names are spoken at a relatively slow pace at the beginning and may excel or not. All voices speak at the same level as if in simple conversation. No exaggerations. Voices may repeat states as they hear them and in the course of the work voices should form duets and trios etc and solo. Make spoken music. Fill the spaces. Overlaps and harmonies encouraged. Silence is encouraged. Orchestrate. Perform until complete.

UTTERS

Utters is a verbodrama for solo or choral presentation. A voice or many voices begins at the top and bellows or reads the word somehow. The body of the voice or voices should be involved physically in the presentation at some point if not all points. Act. Pitch is meaning. Move down through the text performing each word. If in an ensemble, remain somewhat together. If a group presentation then all voices should be in the word: -lost- before the piece begins its closure.
