This has been keeping me busy. Nowdrifts, a new piece for bass clarinet and multichannel audio, written for Richard Haynes, who’s premiering the work in London next week (26 March) in The Body Electric concert curated by Michael Norris as part of the Out Hear series at Kings Place. The piece is “about” noise and reverie, hence the slightly anagrammatic title and the programme note:
White Grey Pink Blue Purple Red Green Orange Brown Black
The piece will also get a couple of performances in Wellington (NZ) in April, as part of Stroma’s 2012 season.
Here’s an excerpt, fixed media audio only (no bass clarinet just yet!), from the piece:
