This piece was inspired by scenes from Shakespeare's Macbeth featuring Hecate and the three witches: the cauldron scene in which they list their dastardly collection of ingredients, and their visions of Macbeth and his self-induced demise. The performers are required to produce screams and shrieks; mutterings and hissings; boilings, bubblings and grumblings; sighs and groans; squeaks, puffings and vocal effects; as well as playing a recurring diabolical dance.

Many thanks to the wonderfully adventurous and magnificently virtuosic trio of Andrew Uren, Gretchen Dunsmore and Donald Nicholls for requesting this piece.
