Phonemes Requiem (2014-2015)
(For four Soloists, mixed Chorus, Didgeridoo, prepared Tombak, Electronics, Computer)

Spectropol is happy to help bring another significant work by Iranian artist Ehsan Saboohi to the west and beyond, this time with the help of a superb group of singers and instrumentalists.

Phonemes Requiem is a large-scale multi-movement work that explores the inner world of speech and vocalized sound, temporally expanded and sonically enhanced, each small section a zone to get lost in while serving the long flow of the piece. It’s rich with detail and gets better with each hearing.
