This composition is based on 3 vocals: (i-a-o). Those vowels are combined with one single consonant (b). By pronouncing on one tone all kinds of variations arise in the sound spectrum. It's a kind of (very minimal) music. By singing those simple combinations all kinds of effects arise in the head of the listener. That real minimal music. By giving the perforrmers freedom in timing and emphasis, the music becomes maximal.
By performing this with her Dutch Students Chamber Choir, choirmaster Maria Nieukerken reached the utmost effect.
( Apologies for the poor recording-quality. In 2007 I didn't have better equipment)
