Addressing themes that range from darkness and isolation to perception and discovery, Ann Cleare has an uncanny ability to translate our innermost experiences and emotions through music. The piece is for solo voice, solo bassoon, guitar, viola, cello, and double bass.
About Teeth of Light Tongue of Waves: “The sonic architecture and thinking within this work grew out of my interest in paleoceanography, the study of the history of oceans in the geologic past. For centuries, the ocean has evoked a sense of wonderment and fear as a vast unknown space loaded with notions of the sublime and the exotic. However, in more recent times, global technological and economic shifts have brought about new concerns and understandings of the oceans. Today's oceans reveal more about the consequences of human actions than ever before. Early Irish Bardic poetry texts become woven sonic objects, evoking a hybrid form of nature being brought into being, the ancient and the modern forming a mouth with which to speak of the ocean after nature has been banished from it.”
