Thin Ice for Alto, Female Choir, Harp, and Percussion in adaptive JI, 16 edo, and 8 edo.


Poem by Richard Leach selected and interpreted / recited / sung by Christiane Offenbar

The ice is thin, the ice is thin –
the shore more distant year by year,
and nearly sixty since I left it now.

There is no going back again.
And I am old yet not so very old –
I bless the ice. I pray for cold.

Thin Ice is a piece for Alto (Christiane Offenbar in adaptive JI), Female Choir in 16 edo, Harp in 8 edo, bass drum and tamtam.
