Tímans tönn (2016) 20′
for soprano and ensemble. Text by Steinunn Sigurðardóttir.
First performance: Kópavogur, September 18, 2016, Þóra Einarsdóttir, Caput Ensemble, Guðni Franzson.
Tímans tönn (Test of Time) is based on four poems by Steinunn Sigurðardóttir from her book Kartöfluprinsessan. The poems deal with passing of time in various ways which made me think of Poppers writing on clocks and clouds. The piece was commissioned by Bogi Þór Siguroddsson and is dedicated to Linda and Bogi.
