Stephen Hatfield: Three Ways To Vacuum Your House

Song NameVoicing
Three Ways To Vacuum Your House - Part ISSA
Three Ways To Vacuum Your House - Part IISSA
Three Ways To Vacuum Your House - Part IIISSA

These original pieces incorporates a multiplicity of multicultural influences, from Peru to Scotland. The text is a sequence of nonsense syllables, imitating the humming and muttering one does during housework. The first movement explores various hemiola patterns culminating in vocalized drum patterns modeled on Arabic and Indian traditions. The second movement, whose slow groove is derived from Reggae, incorporates tonalities and scale structures from Brazil and Lebanon. The final movement starts in Peru, and works upward through Latin America only to discover a hitherto unexplored Mexican/Scottish border. Lots of fun to both teach and sing!
