Inside II (2019)

Inside II is a single movement duet for soprano and percussion. In a highly fragmentary style, the work depicts the inner life of a woman struggling with sadness, anxiety and loneliness. Despite her persistent gloomy thoughts, she realizes she must accept her aloneness as an inescapable facet of her life. All text fragments are derived from the diaries of the American painter and sculptor Eva Hesse (1936-1970).
