Chips Smack Stelios Giannoulakis

Text: James Joice Voice: Megan Penterali

Composed for the First Otto Joachim Project Studio Residency Competition, Concordia University, Montreal. I based the piece on two very casual readings of the text. In a playful approach I used juxtaposition, accumulation and scattering of different versions of the spoken word to create a dynamic that I felt matched the absurd surrealism and automatic, sound-based quality of the text. Certain words and phrases stood out of the stream and received special support or commentary. They are used to punctuate the different sections of the piece leading to a climax and the final release.
