about

A small quantity is sometimes referred to as a quantulum. We explored the musical influence of its existence in opposing proportions from small to great: ‘quantity is a property which exists as magnitude or multitude’. We felt there was something very appealing within these descriptions which could influence the music we wanted to create with composers and explore; relating to change, opposites (such as heavy/light, long/short, broad/narrow, much/little) and that a quantity (used as a scientific term) is a fundamental term, with the quantulum being present at all times but in a state of mutability. dD

duoDorT formed in 2003 to specialise in new music combining piano, keyboard and electronics in any combination. They perform and commission music from a wide range of leading and emerging composers of today, alongside existing duo and duet repertoire.

Quantulum for acoustic duo, commissioned 6 emerging female composers working in different fields including spoken word, sonic manipulation, improvisation and extended techniques and began with an Aldeburgh Residency in Autumn 2012. The project was supported by Arts Council England and Aldeburgh Music.
