Germaine Sijstermans & Nora Mulder
will bring a program of solo works for clarinet and bass clarinet, featuring the clarinet sound as we know it and in microtonality and multiphonics.
Germaine will premiere three works of which two were composed for her.
Eva-Maria Houben wrote telling fairytales (2017), a piece with no beginning or end.
Chaz Underriner composed Shōrin-zu (2017) for Bb clarinet, tape and video, based on Hasegawa’s Pine Trees (16th century silk screen paintings).
Graham Fletts Rustic Sea Riser (2014) for bass clarinet, tape and video creates an atmosphere of motion and mystery. Initially aiming to imitate a previous work for polyphonic gamelan ensemble, this piece took a course of its own.
Onissia (2002), one o fAnastassis Philippakopoulos‘s monophonic songs.
In Rob Manthey‘s soft stone green wise velvet beats familiar (and unfamiliar) materials are being manipulated in a playful way, like the words in the title.
Hollas Longton combined the bass clarinet with sine wave chords.
“The perfect balance between icy chill and volcanic heat”
