THE WORLD TO COME
A commission by Tilman Hecker to compose for the Beethoven’s “Missa solemnis”, I composed and wrote for the Rundfunkchor Berlin and the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester (Berlin State Choir & Berlin State Orchestra) in response to one of the greatest choral works of all time. In opposition to the canonical catholic language in classical pieces such as Missa solemnis, I created orchestral and choral works in Polari, a criminal queer language from the united kingdom. Polari as a language variety unites criminals, queers, travelers, and entertainers, and accumulates toward a subversive form of encryption in public spaces.
Music and lyrics from The World To Come coming soon.
