Places of Sounds and Words is a work for vocalists, ensemble, and sounds from the “real” world: from parks, squares, stairways, conversations, and arguments. Music, texts and sounds of reality are combined to form brief music–theatrical encounters that touch on the subject of how we are present in the world yet do not participate in it.
