Sheet Music: Score
An interior monologue : viola solo / Nirmali Fenn.
by Nirmali Fenn (2013)
Inspired by American poet Clayton Eshleman's reflections on the drawings of Henri Michaux, An Interior Monologue creates a subdued yet highly expressive sound world. The solo viola's open strings, of which the top and bottom are detuned, trapping the music within a tritone pair, act like outer voices, as in counterpoint. They outer voices are like balloon strings, limiting the melody lines on other strings and generating an acute sense of elasticity as the relationship between the lines is stretched to the extreme.
