Down the Deep Stair
for soprano and string quartet. 40-50' (2016-17)
". . . down the deep stair \ the steep stair \ bare head \ bare foot \ no sound \ in the dark
down the steep stair \ in the dark \ that deep dark \ no sound \ in that dead still \ no sound \ alone \ mark the voice . . ."
Down the Deep Stair is an immersive half-concert work written for Ann Moss. Its text is an original libretto, culled from fragments of Samuel Beckett and Yi Sang.
