obscure sorrows (2019)
Dedicated to my friend, William A.P.M.
Duo for clarinet (doubling Bass Drum) and violin.
This piece is a timecode-supported polytemporal composition. It has been created by combining materials from liquid music (2017) for solo B-flat clarinet and materials from cutouts (2014) for violin. The addition of a bass drum, played by the clarinettist, brings an unexpected element of drama to the piece. The duo is a virtuosic tour de force for both instrumentalists.
Duration: circa 11 minutes in duration.
