I am emotionally efficient
I am emotionally efficient is a prototype for a wind and voice shadowplay quintet from Eye Man Made. Two flutes emulate a running machine while the vocalized typography plays with information about the mechanical qualities of nature. This live recording of a performance by Jennifer Ingertila and Chelsea Czuchra was made in Switzerland in 2014.
