O(nly) / (qu’)O

2 Scores for voice(s) and instrument(s) based upon Pauline Reage ‘s Story of O

Alone together, you aloud to yourself, your mouth moving O, your voice to those.
Echoes of O, unbound for moment, of O, of you.
Vous voix pour vous-même, votre bouche O, votre voix mots résonnent vous, échos votre propre.
Vous ou O. Votre bouche pour son mot O. Votre voix contenant O, prononcé pour, échos O.

The English (and French) content of this infamous erotic novel has been tempered with, so that only words containing the letter o remain. O is released vocally while instruments, one per chapter, read her as a note or chords on a stave of words.

O(nly) was first performed in July 2016 at Jazz schmiede in Düsseldrof by Antoine Beuger, Alissa Cheung, Andre O. Möller, Josten Myburgh, Samuel Vriezen, Emmanuelle Waeckerlé. Further performances include Klangraum 2017 (Düsserldorf), Café Oto 2018 (London), Constellation 2018 (Chicago), The Brunswick Club 2018 (Bristol).

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 scores can also be downloaded here and printed on A4 double sided paper.
