Threaded stars 2 : for solo harp / Jennifer Fowler
Also known as: Threaded stars
by Jennifer Fowler (2006)
This piece for solo harp was composed in 1983 and revised under
the title Threaded stars 2 in 2006. It is limited to a
single stream of notes - the piece is almost entirely monophonic
(one note at a time). The stream of notes etches out a
characteristic pattern: a cluster of notes which revolves around
a central note; a kind of "star" pattern in which the central
note exerts a gravitational pull on the surrounding notes.
Leading from one "star" pattern to another are episodes with a
strong sense of direction, or line. The line pulls the stream of
notes upwards or downwards until encountering another star
There is also a constant change of pace: the impetus which propels the movement is constantly getting faster or getting slower.
