fluorescein

(Two cellos) 5'

Programme note

Fluorescein is a fluorescent compound that is often used as a flow tracer; a fluid used to track flow, magnitude, direction, and circulation patterns of another fluid.

For this piece I thought of the two cellos as two separate but intertwined fluids, one always circling and darting around to keep up with the other.
