(Heerlen, Bongerd 18, balkon muziekschool)
Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay (1973) asked several young sopranos to imitate the sound of sirens. One of the first times, Beni Klocker, a singer from the Vienna boys’ choir, sang the call. In various arrangements, different ‘sirens’ blast from a golden-clad loudspeaker. The reference to a real siren is clear, but an attentive listener will also discover the human voices of the young singers. Partially horn, partially siren, The Return is an ode to intensive listening. Different versions of The Retur can be heard in Maastricht as well as Heerlen.
