Cake Piece

‘horrific’ ‘delicious’ (Responses to the premiere performance)

The first of a proposed series of experimental pieces involving cake. Cake Piece takes the simple act of cutting a cake into pieces and transforms it into something at first amusing, then dark and disturbing.

Cake Piece uses a text score and is suitable for performance by amateurs.
