Doldrums (for amplified cello) was written for Dr Alexander Ivashkin in early 1995.
By amplifying the cello, many of the smaller nuances in the sounds can be heard, allowing the piece to be more intimate in nature.
The work brings together two disparate sound worlds: a series of melodic lines and a set of noise-oriented glissandos.
It is the balance and juxtaposition of these two sonic elements which gives the piece its expressive meaning, producing a sense of movement and progression while simultaneously seeming to remain stationary. (Hence the title).
