Ohh
2017

score for 2 voices and (possibly) one instrument, for a final oded based upon Pauline Reage ‘s Story of O.

Alone together, .................... O........................ Echoes of O, ........................... , of O, ............... of you.

The infamous erotic novel has been abridged to seven phrases, chosing those where O is subject (as opposed to passive object). These phrases are gradually stripped of words containing other vowels, until only O remains before being breathed away.

The lines are read slowly, sometimes aloud sometimes with eyes only, pausing in between each, blank spaces are silent and (breath) audible. Instrument (if any) releases O as a short or a long note played softly.

Ohh was first performed by Andre O. Moeller and Emmanuelle Waeckerlé in April 2017.
An arrangement of the recording is included in Ode (owed) to O, double cd released in July 2017 by edition Wandelweiser.

Edition of 100, 20x27cms, 8 pages, laser print on 90 grams office paper, sugar paper cover.
The score can also be downloaded here and printed on A4 double sided paper.
