about

Compound C21H23NO5: a de/recomposition of Bent's "Swollen".

This is the second of five works in the New Narratives Through Transformations Of Structure series, realized from the song "Swollen" on Bent's "Programmed To Love" album.

Lyrically and melodically, this work starts from the center and works backwards using only selected words and phrases from the original. The chorus is also sounded out in reverse.

In harmonic terms the music is a transposed inversion of the original, effectively producing a rising harmonic retrograde.

For soprano and electronics.

lyrics

For always
For always

I want to be in your arms
You electrify me

You make me feel alive
I don't need anything else
It's more peaceful inside
With you

Floats just like a cloud
Holds me like an anchor
Made of the quietest shade of loud
Our love
Our love
