Three minute-long pieces (the number three is important in other ways also) chronicling our heroic egg’s plunge into hot water (jostling for space in the pot); self-awareness (despair at not growing to be a fully-fledged chicken) and ultimate sacrifice at the dinner-table.

Written during a month-long residency in November 2005 at the Visby International Centre for Composers, Gotland, Sweden, and dedicated to this institute and its director Ramon Anthin. First performed by the Continuum Ensemble, Toronto, with narrator James Rolfe in Toronto in October 2006.
