Ka Himeni Hehena

Eigenvalues, my text/sound duo project with Cameron, is gearing up for our performance later this month (Sept. 29). This is one of the pieces we'll be performing. It's the only one we're doing that's not an original; this piece was written by Charles Amirkhanian. The text is all in Hawaiian, although it doesn't make sense. He's simply playing with the sounds of the words. The title means "The Mad Hymn." When we perform the piece, there will be two tracks of recorded voices, and then we do two voices live.
