  • Text by Baudelaire

    This work was commissioned by Stacie Dunlop for "Rêve Doux-Amer," her multi-media performance of art songs setting Baudelaire's poetry. I found "Le Revenant" difficult to work with at first, because the text is so dark and the narrator so evil (I normally set texts that express something dear to my heart, and this poem expresses feelings I cannot really identify with). Stacie encouraged me to explore extended vocal techniques, however, and as I did so I was able to think about how my music could illustrate and explore the ugliness of the narrator's feelings without necessarily endorsing them.
