It's an aria of the character C, sung here by Tuula Paavola, alto. The opera is in an alternative tuning system known as 11-limit Just intonation. Ensemble Avanti! (viola, cello, 2 keyboard synthesizers, percussion) conducted by Dima Slobodeniouk. With Tuuli Lindeberg, soprano, Markus Nieminen, baritone. Kaisa Salmi, set design, Kimmo Kahra, direction.

Text of aria:
He sucks
He sucks
He sucks you up
He sucks you up like a nightmare
Like a freak shrink throwing a nuthead’s ball
Like a fair god of spring doing an encore with a fall.
