Programme Notes

The movements of the Suite correspond to the soundtrack album: 1. Oil; 2. HW/Hope of New Fields; 3. Future Markets; 4. Prospectors Quartet; 5. Detuned Orchestra (a version of the track 'There Will Be Blood').

Note that 'Detuned Orchestra' requires the lowest string of each instrument to be detuned by approximately one octave (unless a pre-tuned second instrument per player is available). The string should not be too slack, a note should sound when the string is bowed. That note will be of a wavering, unpredictable pitch - this is deliberate! The string should be slack enough that when a note sounds, increasing the bowing pressure makes the pitch rise dramatically. It may well be less than an octave. There’s a different ‘sweet spot’ on each instrument.
