What Would The Sextet In Cloud Atlas - As Described In The Novel - Sound Like?
The piece is scored for violin, cello, flute, oboe, clarinet, and piano; the composer in the novel describes his inspiration this way: "Echoes of Scriabin's White Mass, Stravinsky's lost footprints, chromatics of the more lunar Debussy, but truth is I don't know where it came from." J. Bryan Lowder unpacks all those references. Slate 10/29/12
