Cue of the Week: “The Final Tournament (Part 2)”
A companion piece to last week’s music selection, this cue accompanies the climactic showdown between fencers Catherine Bolton and Robbie Hopper. Both are sight-impaired fencers who fence entirely blindfolded. To a sight-enabled observer who can easily sense the relative positions of both participants, the faceoff is unexpectedly gripping.
This cue continues the musical vocabulary of Part 1, utilizing hand percussion and marcato celli to provide a minimalist-style rhythmic drive.
