Notes

  • Program notes: 

    When we were kids, we liked putting butterflies in jars so we could keep them forever and ever. But
    sometimes they always died. It was sad - extra sad because butterflies (in our opinion) are like
    rainbows and unicorns: unadulterated creations of magic and beauty. "Butterfly in a Jar" is 7-minute
    performance for voice and live-electronics. Just one butterfly per jar.
