tenor, percussion and piano

This piece was originally written for American opera Project’s Composers and the Voice series in New York City. The piece uses the ubiquitous words “Made in China”. So much manufacturing seems to be done in China, from textiles to furniture, resulting in a massive carbon footprint from transporting goods literally around the world. It occurred to me while assembling and organizing my new daughter’s room and wardrobe that nearly everything she touches is “Made in China”—her crib, clothes, toys… you name it.
