Interference Patterns (1990) - Belinda Reynolds
for two violins
Premiered Fontainebleu, France - July 1990
Interference Patterns was written for George Thomsoon and Michelle Dulak during my residency at the American Conservatory in Fontainebleau in 1990. The piece is an exploration of the textural possibilities of two violins through a tightly controlled harmonic progression. Its structure is symmetrical, with the two instruments' lines closing in from a large vertical sonority to a tiny cluster. The energy of this section builds up to break out of its confines. Eventually the music restores itself to a transformation of the opening sonority.
