‘Rannsaich’, for two Highland bagpipes

A formidable multi-movement Highland pipe duet designed to bridge the gap between traditional piping and contemporary concert music. ‘Rannsaich’ features non-traditional tunings and fingerings, and experimental performance techniques that will challenge even the most experienced players. The final section of this work is featured on the Manawatu Pipe Band’s ‘Twelve Thousand Miles’ album (2009). (Approx. 14 minutes; instructions on performing experimental techniques included)
