Lost Soul

This piece, through pataphysics, suggests that if one were to become a lost soul after death, it would need to find its body before it decays to escape an eternity in the veil. The spoken words and the cello are intentionally contrasting and irrelevant to each other, representing the disconnection between the two worlds. Furthermore, this idea is reinforced by the human voice, which belongs to our realm, while the lost soul has no voice, but incoherent gestural utterances.
