Doorstop
for Violin and Gamelan
Andrea Reinkemeyer (Eugene, Oregon - 1996, rev. 1998)
For Robert Kyr and The Pacific Rim Gamelan

Program Notes:

Doorstop (1998) was written for The Pacific Rim Gamelan, a composers' ensemble that focuses on both traditional and new repertoire for the gamelan. They perform on the beautiful Gamelan Suranadi Sari Indra Putra. Doorstop is a slowly evolving metrical work that explores the many rich timbres of the gamelan; it was revised in 1998 to include a solo violin line and an extended middle section.
