GEORGES APERGHIS: THE DONG WITH A LUMINOUS NOSE

for Helen Bledsoe

I wrote that piece for Helen Bledsoe with whom I have a close collaboration through several projects with the Ensemble Musikfabrik. I knew she likes very much playing flute chant/parl (here it is the piccolo) and that she uses her voices in several registers. She also told me she loved stories and the texts from Edward Lear, that like Lewis Carroll works on nonsense.
This text allows me to show several colours of parl/chant with the piccolo and to go from the vocal percussions to intelligible text. When I wrote this piece, I was thinking about the stories told by the children and thanks to Helen, I’ve become a child again.
