Notes

  • Program notes: 

    This four-movement work for choir is based on the poem “Meğer” from the book “Gri Divan” (1990) by Enis Batur. In each movement, the choir is divided into spatially positioned right, left and middle groups. When a melodic line shifts from one group to another, it results in the locational change of the line as well. In the work, the poem is treated as a bunker of vowels and consonants and these two different identities are utilized as two contrasting musical characters. In sum, the whole piece is constructed on the temporal shift of two components. First and second movements exhibit a relatively homogenous sonic approach, in the third movement bass voices rise to prominence and the fourth movement displays an organization in which the treble voices are more active generating the momentum for the piece. First movement was premiered by the Istanbul Bilgi University Student Choir.
