waking up: poetic cannon for three voices

The three parts are designed to be recited simultaneously. Voice 1 starts, and then each subsequent voice joins after the previous one has repeated once. Voice 3 repeats once, then drops out. Voice 2 drops out after two additional repetitions. Voice one ends with two final repetitions of the verse.


Voice 1:

Wake up

Go to sleep

Wake up

Go to sleep

Wake up

Coffee coffee

Wake up

Go to sleep

(repeat x12)

Voice 2:

I'm awake

(clap, clap)

I'm awake

(clap, clap)

I'm awake

(clap, clap)

Waking, waking

Waking, waking

Voice 3:
