Sheet Music: Score
The Lowest drawer : for bass flute, bass clarinet, cello and electronics / Cat Hope.
by Cat Hope (2013)
The three instruments in this piece trigger sine tones that duplicate the pitch each instrument plays at particular moments in the piece. These tones, from 13 different pick up points, gradually build to a 13-note chord, which will be different each time the piece is played. The tones draw only pitch - all texture is stripped away and the sine tone continue the trajectory until the end of the peice. The score is proportional, but the player chooses which pitch to play in each iteration, meaning a different cluster will be formed each time. As with many of Cat's works, the piece descends lower in pitch as it unfolds, ending in the lowest range (drawer) of each instrument.
