Mummy III: The Bride
When I returned to Mexico after living abroad for six years, the first museum I visited was “El Museo del Carmen.” The museum has twelve mummies in its basement. I was excited by the dynamic feeling I had when staring at them, despite the stillness of their death. I decided to write a piece for each of them. “The Bride” is the third of twelve pieces inspired by each one of the mummies. It thoroughly explores the technique of singing and playing at the same time, producing an eerie sound, as if the bride was singing to us.
