Study no. 23.1 [Scrollbox (jp&kb)]

for 2 vocalists


Performance Instructions:

For 2 vocalists.

Composed/built for Jesper Pedersen and Katie Buckley in celebration of their marriage.

The score/scroll includes the letters I, D, and O. Jesper reads the black letters, Katie reads the red. The width of the scroll indicates pitch from low/left to high/right. Lines extending from the letters indicate that the note should be sustained. Letters should be sounded as they pass the metal attack rod, sustained (including all glissandi) until the end of the sustain line has passed the attack rod. The contour of glissandi should be followed.

Duration: as long as it takes.

Ryan Ross Smith, Summer 2013.
