About the work

For bass clarinet, e-guitar, double bass and large open ensemble

“interference, in physics, the net effect of the combination of two or more wave trains moving on intersecting or coincident paths. The effect is that of the addition of the amplitudes of the individual waves at each point affected by more than one wave.”

The score functions in two parts:
1. Material for the Conductor and the Trio of Bass Clarinet, E-Guitar and Double Bass (timeline score)
2. Material for the Open Ensemble (open score of Radio Noise 1,2,3; Static 1,2; Harmonies 1,2,3)

The Conductor coordinates the interaction of the two ensembles. The Open Ensemble only needs to see their material; the Trio and the Conductor only see theirs and a stopwatch, coordinated between themselves.

The material and the structure of the piece both take inspiration from the process of continuously turning the frequency search dial on an old analogue radio.

 

This piece was commissioned by KNM Ensemble in 2023
