Didjeribluegrass : for didjeridu and string quartet / Matthew Hindson.
by Matthew Hindson (2005)
As the title suggests, Didjeribluegrass incorporates some aspects of bluegrass music, in particular the fast "fiddling" style of string playing that includes many open strings. Bluegrass music is especially associated with regional areas, and this seemed a good match with the first performances of this piece that took place in towns in western Queensland. The didjeridu sometimes works with this soundworld, but at other times either co-exists or seems to work against the string parts, taking over through improvisation to assume a more prominent role.
