Mists and Sparks (2015)

for Bb clarinet, violin, and percussion

ca. 6-7'






The ideas of resonance, disintegration, echo, and sounds interacting with each other are the main inspiration for Mists and Sparks. Sounds emerge in and out like puffs of smoke, increasing and decreasing in activity and density. In their wake they leave resonant mists of harmony and noise. (RS)
