Duo (2010) – In this duo I explores ostinato figures and the juxtaposition of two ways to collaborate: using music of melody and accompaniment or passages where the two players share a single line. The harmonies for much of the piece were derived from the quartal/quintal pitch collection of the opening melody, and these harmonies drive the groove across many meter changes. Enjoy!
