About the work:
Dirge is a prepared piano piece that is processed through electronics and fused with a harsh vocal speaking the poem “Dirge” by Shakespeare. “Dirge” is written about death from the perspective of the dying. The meditative, dark sound interlaced with complex piano melodies and rhythms creates a perfect, romantic atmosphere around the aspect of death. The harsh vocal can be interpreted as the cries of a crow, traditionally a messenger of death.
