Programme Note:
Duol was written upon the invitation of Duo Vita (Lynn Kuo - violin, John Oliver - guitar), who premiered it at Lakehead
University, Thunder Bay, Ontario, 10 February 2009. While the title derives from "duo" and "duel," the music is more of a
conversation than a confrontation. The music moves amongst five different types of material, the players at times playing together,
at other times diverging to explore ideas independently. The pre-recorded sounds begin with the same material as the violin and guitar
at the opening; each subsequent interjection presents the same material, increasingly distorted. The technological element, in other
words, is not able to listen to the others, and therefore is not equipped to participate in the conversation other than to try to disrupt it
(unsuccessfully, for the most part).
