Parallaxis / by Brendan Colbert.

Library shelf no. 785.3218/COL 1 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

Like any other musical work, Parallaxis can be approached in various ways, but the selection of a different point of observation changes only the observer's perception of the piece and not the piece itself. Let it suffice to say that Parallaxis deals structurally with development by displacement (in turn and/or in combination) of the various parameters of the basic material. Parallaxis was commissioned by Libra in 1993, completed in July of that year, and revised in 2016. It is dedicated to Bob, Dean, and Kevin - friends from my days playing in bands in the 1970s and 80s.
