Contralto clarinet @ Butler University's Elektronik Musik Fest

Image
Composer Franck Felice performed at the University of Iowa with violinist David Brooks during the Center for New Music 2017-2018 season. He invited me to perform during the Elektronik Musik Fest at Butler University this Sunday, January 26, 2020. I'm going to present a new piece for contralto clarinet (or other low clarinet) & live electronics titled In monte Oliveri. This piece constitutes the first movement of the Tenebrae Responsoria - Feria Quinta, an homage to composer Carlo Gesualdo.The score & live electronics are almost ready. The first page looks like this: I'm looking forward to meeting with the music community at Butler University! I hope to see you there if you live in the vicinity.
