This is an excerpt from the chamber opera ABSENCE which I composed 2011. It's for voice and electronics and inspired by media reports about so called cluster suicides in Chinese factories 2010. The reports told stories about workers throwing themselves from rooftops and the employer's attempt to limit the deaths by placing nets around the highest buildings. Instead of like raising the salaries...

The voice belongs to Anne Pajunen and the electronics to me. The recording was made during a live performance in January 2012.

Edgy. A bit creepy. The ending is surprising.

Certainly provokes the message of a uncomfortable situation.

Yes, the ending is a bit surprising if you don't get the whole picture. The siren marks the end of one scene and the beginning of the next. It would make more sense if you could hear the whole opera.

Thanks for commenting. I know this is strange music in most peoples ears. My next upload might perhaps be a strange cover instead... smiley
