Euphorbia

The title, ’Euphorbia', relates to the flower Euphorbia Palustris. It is one of 66 deadly poisonous plants in Denmark. It is beautiful and very common. In the piece I wanted to transform the effect the poison would have one a human if someone ate it. 


’Euphorbia' is written in 2010 for 7 musicians in different versions. One of the parts has been written to be played by 3 different instruments and the electronics can be played either with Max/MSP with all effects live or with soundfiles played from a computer or a sampler keyboard:

The instrumentation of ’Euphorbia’ is:

Flute                                                                                    

Clarinet                                                                         

Percussion                                                                             

Zither or Grand piano (prep.) or Electric guitar                               

Violin                                                                                

Cello                                                                                  

Live-electronics or Pre-recorded soundfiles
