The Voice (2007)
for bassoon and cello
by Dai Fujikura (b. 1977)- Japanese composer


When Pascal Gallois asked me to write a duo for bassoon and cello, my first idea was to make an imaginary instrument by combining these two instruments which share a fairly similar pitch range. However, rather than starting the piece with a two-line counterpoint, I imagined the opening section to be like listening to twins talking: one talks but the other finishes the sentence. Pascal then gave me a series of multiphonis, which made me feel like a little kid in a sweet shop! I picked the sounds I liked, then I built the harmony around those multiphonics. The cello's quadruple stop, which is very classical cello writing, blends with the bassoon's multiphonics which almost fills the gaps between the fournote chords played by the cello.
