David Hahn: A Single and Two Videos

David Hahn‘s single Kindergarten Word Ring is out. For this purpose he has created two videos.

“Kindergarten Word Ring” premiered at the Electronic Music Odyssey Concert Series in Los Angeles in March 2005. The work consists of the reading of a kindergarten word list and assorted vocal sounds by two conveniently available kindergarten age (or thereabouts) students — David Hahn’s daughters. Hahn has also included some of their infectious laughter as well as the crunching of a pretzel. His intention was to create a quick-moving Scherzo movement which would present these spoken words and phonemes traveling through space with very little electronic processing.

If one listens within the sounds of the well-articulated words of this piece, it seems that these young minds can teach us about the laughter and curiosity and serious nature of words we use everyday. These are words which a kindergartner not only reads, but lives.

“Als Zarathustra” is inspired by Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Gesang Der Junglinge, this is a reading of the opening paragraph of Friedrich Nietzsche’s Also Sprach Zarathustra. Voice, electronics: David Hahn.

Stream the single here, on Spotify, Tidal, Apple Music, Deezer etc. It is available for download here, from iTunes, Bandcamp and all Amazon sites.
