Setting of Gavin Ewart’s poem “Alcohol” in various keys for equal voices (high tenors, low altos, mezzos, sopranos etc) – all in very close harmony
The video is performed by the composer in the key for low altos
O, so slowly the brain starts to go
as the cells are burned out row by row
and they’re never replaced
So we’re certainly faced
with oblivion – the last thing we know!
