In this work, my friend Helen sings along with a recording I took of St.Etienne's football supporters group Magic Fans (St.Etienne vs. Toulouse, 2011). The piece emphasizes the contagious nature of chanting. Despite Helen not being a member of the Magic Fans, she gets involved (affected/infected) quite easily and participates in the singing without hesitation. The recording concludes with a final comment by the guest singer talking about the power of collective chanting and how demanding it is to sing aloud.
