Product details

This work uses a graphic score to examine ideas about glissandi and drone. Each instrument has a part that relates to the others in terms of pitch and time but is also self referential to a central 'pitch line'. The tempo is set within an automated score player that enables the performers to keep together. The composers interest in drone music relates to its textural and maximalist tendencies, the way small details that in other music seem insignificant can seem very large when there is not a lot of change in rhythmic or pitch materials. This piece can be interpreted by any 5 instruments.
