for ariella

'for ariella' is a piece about connectivity, empathy, and fostering a shared sense of community, through a piece built around a loose transcription of an improvised theatre vocal warmup conducted by Susie MacDonald during the showings of 'To be a bat' at London Horror Festival.

With no breath marks and minimal dynamics, articulation, and scoring outside of the notes themselves and a few directions, the ensemble are made to feel the connectivity between each other as they feel their way through the piece.

'for ariella' was written for ariella como stoian - a wonderful collaborator and friend - and dedicated to the wonderful folks who I've worked with at Distracted Rat (Susie MacDonald, Will Jarvis, James Ireland, Jalice Corral et al.)

The actors hum.

Harmony. Dissonance.

~ excerpt from The Emoji Project, au. ariella como stoian.
