Coil for saxophone, violin, viola, double bass and piano

Davidson, Robert A. (2005) Coil for saxophone, violin, viola, double bass and piano. (Unpublished)


Musical composition influenced by M. C. Escher's 1955 work Convex and Concave, this work uses shifting downbeats as a point of time dislocation. Characterised by inward turning "coiling" motifs, the music derives its energy from the tension between linear and cyclical tendencies.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
