about

con•gress: walk together

from Latin congressum, the past participle of congredior (“I go, come together”), itself from con- + gradior (“I go, step”)

music for voting

con•gress is an ambient opera in three acts for voices from the 115th U.S. Congress (2017-18). Speeches and debates become a libretto harmonized into arias and duets. Floor exchanges become rhythms and recitations. The pitches of spoken words become a score for musical accompaniment.
