hush : for harp and cello
by Charlie Sdraulig (2012)
Both parts are bowed in hush. The physical space between bow and string is explored. This space is approached with extreme delicacy and care. Often the natural nervous twitch of the hand determines whether sound will be produced. These sounds are extremely soft and fragile. Often no sound is produced at all, leaving only a physical gesture. Slow glissandi are indicated in the score by hand drawn lines. Often the natural nervous twitch of the hand determined whether a line would be produced.
Instrumentation: Harp, cello.
Duration: 9 min.
