about

In the Fall of 2011 my long time collaborator Jerome Begin and I were asked to work with Soprano Julie Hamula to create music for "Motus" a new performance piece produced by the Guernica Collective.

Jerome and I were blown away by Julie, she immediately felt at home phrasing beautiful melodies inside our sonic insanity. The creation of this music was a big highlight of 2011 and I am extremely grateful to everyone who helped make this recording happen.

lyrics

Lascia ch'io pianga mia cruda sorte,
E che sospiri la libertà!

E che sospiri,
e che sospiri la libertà!

Lascia ch'io pianga mia cruda sorte,
E che sospiri la libertà!

Il duolo infranga queste ritorte de miei martiri sol per pietà,
de miei martiri sol per pietà.

E che sospiri la libertà!

English
Let me weep

Let me weep for my cruel fate
And sigh after freedom!

And let me sigh
Sigh after freedom!

Let me weep for my cruel fate
And sigh after freedom!

May sorrow break these ropes of my sufferings out of pity,
of my sufferings out of pity.

And let me sigh after freedom!
