New Music – Co[operative]

So I have finally gotten round to uploading a short duet I wrote earlier this year for Viola and Cello. Originally for Violin and Cello I became fascinated by the pitch and sonic crossover/interchanging/combining potential of using Viola and Cello. Influenced by spy films, tv thrillers and suspense books Co[operative] explores the relationship between the two instruments where there is often a sense of uncertainty and mystery, conflict and tension, represented by subtle and obvious shifts in timbre, pitch and purpose and heightened by the performers sitting apart on either side of the room.

Have a listen below and have look at the piece’s page to find out more.
