Abstract/Artist Statement

SCREWj

by Scott Nelson

Text by Charles Dickens

Brad Parese, voice

David Dryfoos, piano

The voice's text comes from A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.

"It is required of every man, that the spirit within him should walk abroad among his fellow-men, and travel far and wide; and if that spirit goes not forth in life, it is condemned to do so after death. It is doomed to wander through the world—oh, woe is me!—and witness what it cannot share, but might have shared on earth, and turned to happiness!"

At this point in the story Ebeneezer Scrooge's deceased business partner, Jacob Marly, is exhorting Scrooge from beyond the grave to change his ways, lest Scrooge suffer a similar fate to his own.

In SCREWj, the voice and piano play the parts of Marley and Scrooge respectively.
