Flicker (2014)

Duration: 10′
Instrumentation: solo bass clarinet

Fantasy was composed at the request of clarinetist Calvin Falwell, who had performed my solo clarinet piece Reconnections the previous spring at the USF New Music Festival. Though it does not feature any extended techniques, it’s a difficult piece, not only in terms of the technique and registral flexibility required but also in the quickly shifting moods and textures.
