Clarinet multiphonics in Electroclarinet 1

A clarinetist recently asked me some help before performing my composition Electroclarinet 1, for Bb clarinet and live electronics. I've been thrilled to help her, and at this occasion, I engraved the multiphonics with the correct fingerings:
These are split tones, played with regular fingerings. Low & higher harmonic region refer to the amount and relative frequencies of the partials present in the sound, similarly to what Xenakis uses in his composition Charisma.Timbre trill with low F key.
Have a look at the multiphonics in their original notation: they figure in the music manuscript. Also, make sure you listen to the live recording of Electroclarinet 1's premiere!
