About

vingt secondes is Karlheinz Essl's shortest composition. It lasts only 20 seconds - the guideline for washing one's hands during the COVID-19 pandemic. It was written during the lockdown in the Easter holidays of 2020 as a contribution to David Bohn's The COVID-19 Project.

Compositionally, the piece expresses a harmonic spread from a single note to three octaves at the end.

The piece needs to be performed on a concert melodica with 3 octaves ranging from f - f" (recommended: HOHNER Superforce 37).
