Something wicked

"By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes"
(Shakespeare, MacBeth)

"Something wicked" is music about witches and witchcraft.
In the music first an enchanting spell is wrought, slowly bringing to life something horrible. When the spell is cast in the end, a wild dance starts in which even the witches themselves cannot control what they have just created.
No electronic sounds are used on the electronic track that accompanies the live instruments. All sounds are natural samples. Except for the vocal effects, all those samples were derived directly from the flute and the piano.
"Something wicked" was written for Duo Subiaco and commissioned by the Fonds voor de Scheppende Toonkunst.
