Programme Note:
The piece uses the ubiquitous words "Made in China". So much manufacturing seems to be done in China, from textiles to furniture, resulting in a massive carbon footprint from transporting goods literally around the world.

It occurred to me while assembling and organizing my new daughters room and wardrobe that nearly everything she touches is "Made in China" - her crib, clothes, toys; you name it. I used the words to create a rather eccentric piece that is probably more in the vein of Meredith Monk, rather than Schubert.
