about

Commissioned Michael Zaugg for Pro Coro in 2013, this is a large work for 16 part a cappella choir. The genesis of this work came from Michael and I’s love for comic books and the illustrated page.

Paired with the poetry of 19 century Symoblist, Georges Rodenbach, each movement is meant to convey the story of one of five graphic novels from Les Cités Obscures, a Belgian series of comics created in the 1980s by writer Benoît Peeters and artist François Schuiten.

lyrics

The Tower
Text adapted from Seul and Dimanches
by Georges Rodenbach

to live as in exile,
alone.
