|Comments:||Based on an ancient sextatonic scale named Gujuri-Todi, this composition leans heavily on my knowledge both in Indian classical music and in modern western classical composition.|
The duet utilizes the timbres of the Indian sarod and the western fagott.
The sarod is my main instrument, which I have been studying for about four years. It is a ninteen strings plucked instrument. It is considered equal in importance to the sitar, and has a very natural ability for long glissandi, and thus all legato in the part of the sarod are actually smooth delicate glissandi.
