Fleeting Thoughts: Mr. Henderson’s 3AM explores the events of a restless nocturnal mind with non-sequiturs both wacky and tender, hilarious and profound. It is a kinetic painting of extreme time and space relationships, language that hovers just under meaning, and vocalizations that travel well beyond established boundaries. The work was made in collaboration with composer Joan La Barbara’s unique vocabulary of experimental and extended vocal techniques: multi-phonics, circular singing, ululation and glottal clicks, that bridge the line between text and song.
