Her Sisters' Notebook for ten bass clarinets Bcl1 (PDF)
£2.49 (£2.99 incl. VAT)
This version created in 2015 is based on the 2011 version published for Sarah Watts to perform as a solo work with her pre-recorded bass clarinet choir.
Miniatures 5, 6, & 7 contain multiphonics selected by Sarah Watts in collaboration with Lola Perrin at the beginning of the composition process.
The composition's structure was derived from a combination of fragments by Kassia (c.850AD, Constantinople) and the painting, "Kiss 19" by David Oates. A DVD of the image is available for projection during multimedia performances. It is the composer's intention that the audience can see the image projected or within the programme notes during performance. The idea is that the eye travels down as the movements progress. At Miniature 7 "1 bar miniature", silence marks the disappearance of the elliptical body near the lower part of the painting.
