A companion piece – of sorts – to Reasonableness Standard (2013). The earlier piece was for two trombones, this one is for two double basses.

Both feature music and texture attuned to such sacrifices, so that every solution plays into the piece's agenda. Structurally, however, Fiduciary Standard is very different: it is a miniature moment form.
