Tears

from by Andrée Greenwell

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    CD and digital release of the score, commissioned for the legendary Sydney Front's theatre work of the same name. With beautiful artwork by Megan Stone, featuring photographs by photographer Ann Harris. Blending a minimalist ensemble (Helen Mountfort, Nigel Paul and Greenwell), with gorgeous vocals by Jeannie Van de Velde, Tyrone Landau and Andrée Greenwell, and a variety of domestic sounds. Like the theatre work, Greenwell traverses the sublime to the violent. Recorded and engineered by Tim Cole at St Alselm's Anglican Church, Middle Park, Melbourne.

about

The sampled voices on this track are of the voices of Clare Grant and Andrea Eloise, in liquid-emotion outpouring. A piece of mourning and celebration.

lyrics

I did not wish to use a biblical text for this work. Alternatively I ask the singers to improvise pseudo-Latin and pseudo old French words and syllables, the idea being to evoke the sounds of an old language, of another time. The rhythms were given to the singers, with some syllables written in, others were improvised or written in as we rehearsed.
