Sheet Music: Score
In the cut : for violin, cello, bass clarinet, distorted bass guitar and turntable / Cat Hope.
by Cat Hope (2009)
This piece is a study in decline, in particular pitch decline, and the decline of structure and melody. The work begins in the high range of instruments and journeys constantly downward in pitch until the instruments have no tuning left at all, just a loose string or open embouchure. The turntable has a 10" record that plays a descending tone (made especially for the work) that links the bass guitar to the acoustic instruments. In the Cut is a novel by Susanne Moore published in 1999, later adapted into a film directed by Jane Campion. This piece is inspired by the slow burning eroticism that accompanies the disintegration that takes place in that story.
