Sheet Music: Score
Voyages : entre deux paraboles intimes / Robert Douglas.
by Robert Douglas (1984)
Translated, the title means 'journeys between two intimate parabolas' and the work is a musical observation of a beam of light as it reflects back and forth between two parabolic mirrors. There are long sections of double stopped harmonic unisons with specified 'beat' rates. These are interspersed with passages comprising rapid successions of varying combinations of bowing and pizzicato including left hand hammer-ons and pull-offs.
