ritual | solo Bb clarinet


"Ritual" depicts a type of ancient dance performed in a desolate, desert-like place to bring rain to the Earth. Using quarter-tone runs and multiphonics, primitive sounds are used to summon a storm, which starts with light rain depicted by key clicks, and becomes more chaotic as the motive continues to change.

performed by:

Grant Jahn, clarinet
