Anthroposcenes (1, 2)

by Dugal

Anthroposcenes (1, 2), for voice and electronics, was commissioned by IEM and premiered by the wonderful counter-tenor Kai Wessel in IEM’s Signale series back in March. The concert featured works by Trevor Wishart and Karlheinz Essl – fabulous to be in such outstanding company! The piece itself is an ongoing exploration of the body-environment metaphors, in multiple languages, which underpinned Let x =, created while composer-in-residence at IEM in 2014-15.
