Robert van Heumen – Spill

Spill is a composition for harp, oil pipe and electronics, composed by Robert van Heumen, researched together with Miriam Overlach.
Spill is a musical response to fossil fuel disasters that often go unnoticed by the general public. In 5 miniatures Spill comments on ruthless oil companies, human tragedies and polluted environments. The processed harp is sometimes cold as ice, sometimes hot as giant flames that can be seen from 20 miles away. She cries, screams, explodes, gulps and rumbles. Each of these 5 miniatures is announced by a bang on an oil pipe and focusses on a specific extended harp technique. Placed in an electronically enhanced environment the harp is forced to adapt to the environment or fight against it.
