While the instrumentation is officially for cello, violin and any 2 pitched instruments, the score is flexible enough that many instruments may be substituted. For instance, even the cello may be substituted for double bass. Check out the score here.
Additionally, I have a dream of a piece that is a continuation of strange strain but for a stationary cello (or double bass) and just two fishing wire operators. Around 20 minutes and based on long durations and endurance. It is, for now, unwritten but if this idea interests you and your group please contact me to start a dialogue about working together to realize this idea.
Instrumentation: Cello, Violin, any 2 pitched instruments, electronics.
Performed by Schallfeld Ensemble
