Product details

Doppler Patrol is an orchestral work incorporating within its instrumentation the Vietnamese instrument the Dan Tranh, plus the acoustic guitar and didjeridu. The title of the work relates to its commission as a movement in the 2021 Vietnam Requiem. This particular movement tries to capture the anxiety and occasional elation in the experience of being on patrol in a jungle environment where threats and unfamiliarity contribute to a heightened sense of fear and awareness. The piece ends with an extended lament for Dan Tranh accompanied by the didjeridu. The 'Doppler' reference in the title refers to the falling semitone pattern heard throughout the work - suggesting the experience of something moving closer and further away.


NB. The work exists in two versions - this one with Vietnamese Dan Tranh and one guitar and a subsequent version (op.111a) with two guitars but no Dan Tranh.
