Description

Influenced by Stockhausen’s Stimmung and the Tenores di Oniferi, The Vast Sea utilizes a variety of vocal timbres and microtonality to create vivid, dynamic textures reminiscent of a thrilling journey across the sea. This piece can be performed in many different choir and size arrangements - whether as a small vocal sextet or as a full choir.
