Programme Note:
This piece is based on the sound of the word shit in twelve different languages. It travels from west to east geographically across the world: starting in North America and ending in Japan. The languages were chosen either because I speak them, or because I could find a native speaker of that language to teach me how to say shit. I did, however, attempt to keep a somewhat even spacing between geographical areas, although a completely even distribution would have been, of course, impossible to realize.

Premiere Information:
12/03/2009 Bentley Studio, Banff Centre Banff, Canada Live event, recital. Solomiya Moroz (flute), Nicholas Jacques (percussion).
