by Nguyen-Thien Dao (1940-2015)- Vietnamese-French composer
This piece, written in 2002, comes as a performance score; there are no separate bassoon and percussion parts. The score is hand-written, but very legible. Instructions are in French, with no translation provided. There is constant use of extended techniques for the bassoon, mostly pitch-bending. The Percussion instruments used are: vibraphone, bass marimba, pedal timbale, 5 gongs, tamtam, and Japanese bells.
