Written shortly after the congressional hearing regarding Planned Parenthood in September 2015, this work seeks to address the concept of duality while denaturing the toxic rhetoric that has dominated our political landscape. The audio samples used are from the hearing, and changes in the electronics are triggered by pitch input from a contact microphone attached to the oboe–no intervention on the part of the performer is required.
