For Bb clarinet and electronics
solo Bb clarinet, tape, and sine waves (2015)
For Bb Clarinet and Electronics depicts an aspect of the compositional process that occurs in my mind as I write. As the live performer continues through the piece, various pre-recorded Bb clarinet parts spiral around them; weaving in and out of their lines to create a cacophony of sounds. With all of the activity both on the page and in the performance, it is up to the audience to determine what is really happening in front of them and what is happening behind the scenes.
This work was premiered by clarinetist Eric Umble at the Firehouse Space in Brooklyn, NY (November 6, 2016).
