Sep Vortoj, Sep Mondoj


Sep vizaoj rigardadas de via korspaco. Atente observu, ili farias unu. Sep Montoj; iu siavice farias via piedbenkto. Sep Arboj staras sur la montopinto. Ili estas la savo. Sep vortoj, simetrie penditaj, sur tempo kaj lango ekvilibras. Sep Mondoj la suno orbitas, plenaj de devoto. Sep steloj silente realecon konturas. Sep formioj, senvizaaj, senmontaj, senarbaj, senvortaj, senmondaj, senstelaj. Sepeca tempo; la alia flanko estas malplena.

Seven Words, Seven Worlds


Seven faces stare from your heart-space. Look intently, they become one. Seven Mountains, each one in turn becomes your step-stool. Seven trees stand on the mountain top. They are salvation. Seven words, hung symmetrically, balance on time and tongue. Seven worlds circle the sun, full of devotion. Seven stars silently outline reality. Seven formations, faceless, mountainless, treeless, wordless, worldless, starless. Seventhtime; the other side is empty.

Words, Seven Worlds Gather silently outside the performance area and, very quietly and asynchronously, begin intoning the
& W

I - Intoning - notes

following pitch (d4) either 2 minutes before performance time, or during the applause for the previous piece. This pitch will be the reference pitch for the rest of the work, so it is very important to be able to remember it and sing it at any time. Next, process into the performance space and onto the stage (should there be one.) Begin very softly and cresc. to mf by the time you enter the performance area. See fig.A for the procession configuration. The stage setup is shown in fig.B. Once everyone is in position, the singers should sit crosslegged. It is important that the tonic pitch never be lost during the entire procession. If the performers wish, pillows or a rug may be used to sit on, but if any pillows or cushions are used, all of the performers should use them. After everyone is seated and comfortable, continue holding the tonic for 10-15 seconds.

II - Seventh-Time - notes
Voice 1: Still on the note 'd', repeat the word group (a) faster each time. Additionally, slap your thigh on the 'unu' for each repetition. For the first time, raise your hand in the air first, to signal to the other singers that this section is about to begin and they should start counting repetitions. Drop out words when repetition becomes difficult, but maintain rhythm. example: 'unu - (rest) - tri - (rest) - kvin' - repeat. When it becomes too fast to sing all of your words, simply repeat 'unu' while slapping your thigh. When the other singers have all held their notes, (and you are repeating 'unu' at an insanely fast tempo) stop.

Voices 2-12: Starting on repetition number 3, chant the text (still on 'd'), one syllable at a time coinciding with the pattern of voice 1. As time goes on, speed up, asynchronously with the rest of the group so that by the end of the text, you are neither with voice 1 nor with anyone else. The last word "malplena" should be as fast as possible. Hold the last syllable 'na'.

Interlude I - notes
Voices 5 & 6: After holding the final "_na" of "malplena" for approximately 10 seconds, begin the interlude. Sing clearly and plainly with no vibrato at a dynamic of mf or thereabouts. Emphasize correct pitch and intonation above all else. Voices 1-4, 7-12: As soon as 5 & 6 begin singing, begin a long (10-15 seconds) diminuendo to silence.

Interlude III - notes


Voices 8 - 10: wait 5" and move slowly with each other as indicated on the movement chart below. Repeat the music until you have circled the group completely and returned to your original positions. You should maintain strict time to avoid getting out of sync with each other. Voices 1-7 & 11-12: As 8-10 circle you, make a general diminuendo so that by the time they return to their positions, you are silent. While getting softer, perform random, subtle accents on your pitches, interjecting an occasional consonant and changing your vowels with each iteration.

b Interlude III - notes b # b Notes in boxes are to be sung as smoothly as possible at

2008 Scacinto

whatever tempo you find comfortable, though faster is preferred. The text in the boxes below should be sung ad lib, but need to be spread out enough to cycle through the series at the very least 3 times. Try to catch breaths where possible with the least disturbance to the cycling line as possible. Do 2008 not exceed the dynamic indication of 'pp.'

Voices 3-7: in the middle section, you may choose any of the notes in your box to sing, and transition from note to note. You are encouraged to ornament freely on (and therefore around) your notes. The boxes at the bottom of the page show some 8 fnsh examples of the types of ornamentation you might employ. Voices 10-12: Coordinate your downbeat (on the low 'g') and stay in rhythm together using whatever non visually-distracting means you find convenient.

VII - Quodlibet - Notes


All stand simultaneously (watch voice 1), and beginning with the front row, form columns as the beginning, but now reversed, and process out of the performance space. (See diagram below.) Starting with your first movement, sing any 7" of music from the piece. Do not frantically flip from page to page to find your next passage; an approximation of a passage from memory is preferable to this. At the end of the 7", sing another 7" of music from either the same movement or from a different movement. If the music is chosen from the same movement, choose a different place in the movement, do not merely continue on without break. Continue to alternate in this fashion until you are entirely out of the performance space.
