Twin Souls, text-based electroacoustic music

Ce texte n’est pas disponible en français.

Twin Souls is a collection of electroacoustic compositions that incorporate texts which deal with various gender issues. Some, but not all, refer to same sex relationships; others leave the identity of “the other” to the listener’s interpretation. In all cases I have gravitated toward lyric poetry that expresses the human desire for this other being, whether a “mirror image,” an idealized partner, or a complementary “opposite.” In the first two works, the instrument itself is personified as the lover to whom the poetry is addressed. In the excerpts from my opera Powers of Two, these relationships are dramatized on stage. In each piece, the disembodied electroacoustic element takes on the role of creating in your mind your own version of the “twin soul.”
