Johannes Maier b. 1971
Sirene Sang Sie (Siren She Sang) (1998)
Duration: 2 minutes

On a suburban street an opera singer sings along to the sound of a police siren. What begins as mere imitation turns into a competition with the siren, the singer’s voice drowning it out when the patrol car appears. The singer has the final note, long after the car and its siren have disappeared.

Singer: Itziar Lesaka
