Split thee, Soul, to Splendid Bits (attn.: no eternal life/light this time around) was commissioned by Nordic Affect and written in the summer of 2018. The piece is divided into five movements, as well as a prelude and interlude, played through continuously. Each movement is dedicated to a certain character or incident, staged in a somewhat religious rollercoaster for atheists.
i. a dirty prelude to get started
I. “Virgin” Mary
II. Mr. Saint Nice Guy
III. Uomo in disguise
IV. Revelation: wave-crushed stones and primitive despise
ii. interlude: OMFG have mercy on us
V. Amma in the skies
