Electroclarinet 1 - Live in Shanghai

I recorded my own performance of Electroclarinet 1 in Shanghai. This is the direct sound from the clarinet (do you see the wireless microphone on the picture?) and the live electronics.
Shanghai, October 20th, 2009. Hope you like the white clarinet bell!

Frozen sounds in Electroclarinet 1
It's winter, and although it's not too cold in Cambridge today, it's a good time to talk about audio freeze (the equivalent of frozen frames in video). We can hear two different versions of frozen sounds in this composition:
- from 2:50 to 3:50, several tremolos (sometimes arpeggios) are immediately frozen, and followed most of the time by a melodic phrase.
- from 4:48, a high pitch (concert A) is frozen. Later, notes are added to this sound, building into a chord. The first note is added at 5:00, then 5:03, etc. The ice is melting at 5:26, when the frozen chord undergoes a long descending glissando.
I wish you a great - & warm - new year!
