Sur les pas de la lune (In the steps of the moon) for mezzo-soprano and ensemble by Kelly-Marie Murphy Dur: 14′
This piece “sets the text of postwar French poet, Philippe Jaccottet. The poem contains wonderfully rich symbolism that is very elemental – moon, water, earth, grass – and a timeless message of overcoming the obstacles in one’s life.
The voice is used in a vocalize style. When the voice enters with text, she is completely alone. The voice weaves in and out as an equal instrument.” (the composer)
