A Thousand Tongues

This music video was created by Pella Collective, an ensemble for Dutch and American contemporary music.

A Thousand Tongues was commissioned by cellist and vocalist Jody Redhage. This piece is a short but intense response to the following text by Stephen Crane:

Yes, I have a thousand tongues,
And nine and ninety-nine lie.
Though I strive to use the one,
It will make no melody at my will,
But is dead in my mouth.

— Missy Mazzoli
