Instrumentation: tenor, soprano & piano
Duration: 40’

Info/Program note:
A long collection of songs on Dutch, English, German and French texts – ranging from Dr. Seuss to Kurt Schwitters. Written while still studying, in 1994 or thereabouts and scored for Tenor, Soprano and Piano. Though several parts – including a systematic counting section - may still be of marginal interest, the work was withdrawn mainly for reasons of esthetic incompatibility and an overall sense of ‘total wrongness’.
