  • for 8 voices, 4 percussion player and 2 e-pianos
  • Duration: 15’
  • Composer: Vic Hoyland

Work introduction

Foxed tells, in comic-strip fashion, a Renard fable; hard to forget Stravinsky – however, this version has a well with two buckets and despite the sounds made, my characters are not animals but people drawn from the 30’s world of the American movie. So: Fox is a young, fast-on-his-feet gangster, Wolf is a gigolo, Cock is a pimp, and his hens are women of easy virtue.

The work Head and Two Tails consists of Bitch, Dumb Show and Foxed.
