Lucifer (alto tenor duet)
This is a vocal game rather than a song, for two players rather than voices. Sharing and
chopping what is essentially one vocal line for a soloist (with an occasional attempt to make
it a genuine duet) the sìngers sing for their presence in the game to win the bells and fight
for the supremacy of the character Lucifer whom they both pÌay but maybe neither is
willing to really share.

During the time of writing Aurora I was reading a lot about misplacement and arrivals
to foreign lands. Creative people (and people in general) are always fighting something,
regardless of whether it is external or within,
and perhaps the most difficult monent comes when we recognise that both our sides have
come together in agreement of rejection. This is why the two soprano parts are almost
identical, but at times create discomfort
through their similarities. Aurora ís essentially a hymn, a cry, a scream of longing for the
sunrise of motherland.

Gain and Abel
Simply an attempt to create a vocal vignette replaying a biblical story through the eyes of
two gangsters and an early morning murder scene on some forgotten highway.
