Wee Robot

for 4 disklaviers and supplementary electronic sounds
Natacha Diels 2014
Presented by Qubit New Music

This piece is written for 4 disklaviers and fixed electronics. The electronics are primarily drawn from the 2006 Chan-wook Park movie I'm a Cyborg but that's OK.

Hey Kids! I'm here. You Fluorescent lights. No use pretending you don't understand me. Lights here aren't very friendly, are they? No matter how tired you are, it's bad manners not to say hello. How are you, after working all day? .. I'm a machine but I didn't come with an instruction manual or a label on me anywhere. I still don't know what my purpose is. What was I made for? .. Time for meditation. Get up and listen to the hum of the fridge in the middle of the night. On a cold winter morning. Feel the sound of the boiler that has been running all night. They move us to tears because they have a purpose of existence. Think of the lighthouse's holy and beautiful heart of love. To be continued.

from "I'm a Cyborg but that's OK"
