Joanne Hammil – Popcorn

Listening to this fast paced round was incredibly entertaining. It is a modern piece, written for six voices. It has a really cheery, amusing mood. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to find the score nor the text of the piece online, but an audio of it can be found here :

One thing that made me choose this piece, is that the singers also use other ways of making sounds with their bodies. In this case claps, snaps and even a “pop” sound, produced with the mouth and matching the text can be heard.

I tried to play the melody on the piano myself, which wasn’t easy at first, due to the fast tempo of the piece, but after a while I memorized the structure and was even able to play two voices time wise separately from one- another.
