Throat (2010)

This div will be replaced


Instrumentation: Bass Clarinet/Clarinet in Bb and Percussion
Duration: 10’
Commission: Jean Kopperud for the Rated X Project
Notes: Throat was commissioned by Jean Kopperud for the Rated X II Project and is dedicated to her and Tom Kolor. It is a tongue-in-cheek homage that uses driving rhythms, guttural tones, the extended low register of the bass clarinet, altered tunings, and audio samples to create a piece that is designed to evoke a wide range of reactions. Richard Nixon would not have approved. (Pee Wee Herman would.)
