Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Sonic Cells on a Structured Surface is a concerto for bass clarinet and chamber orchestra. The three movements are characterized by different tempi, composition techniques and the overall use of the orchestra. In the formal scheme A-B-A’ the parts A represents the sphere of musical notes and the part B the world of sounds and noises. They never come to a synthesis. The soloist and the orchestra have to deal with extreme registers, special techniques and quartertones. The sound cells multiply from each other, they mutate, degenerate, get lost and get transformed into new forms.
