"Lullaby: A Culling Song" for solo soprano and electronic accomapaniment

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Hi there, Just joined up with this site because I have been a long time Chuck fan and also like the idea of sharing my craft with peers. I happen to be a composer of classical and electronic music and wrote a piece about a year ago for both genres.

How does this relate here? The subject matter was inspired after I read Lullaby, mostly with regard to the idea of real african culling songs.I did some musical research and ended up writing this piece for a solo soprano singer and electronics.

I would love to see what fellow Palahniuk fans think but I must warn you, this is a classical piece of music and extremely modern. It's not what we call 'tonal' necessarily and it uses electronics in a more experimental sense ala Aphex Twin or Trent Reznor. If you've never listened to a piece of modern classical music you might not like what you find right off the bat. But if you're a fan of "something different" (at least I hope you think it's different : ) ) or are just bored feel free to check out this video of the piece's premiere a year ago and let me know what it did to you.

 

Thanks for listening,

Chris
