Music and text: Eva Pfitzenmaier
Kammerkoret GNEIS: Kristin Mestad, Ingvild Solberg, Irene Brendehaug, Tordis Marie Espeland, Marita Myhre, Trine Skeistrand Kjoberg
Conducter: Tore Kloster

The piece was originally written for 6 female voices but is very flexible regarding the number of performers and voice types. Please get in touch for more information and the score.

the end of kings is a call for rioting against patriarchal power structures that are still existing extensively in today’s society. The music uses elements like deconstruction and reconstruction of the text, propagandistic tools, performative elements, and sound overpowering other sounds.
