Earthshine (2018) bass clarinet and vibraphone
Earthshine occurs when light from the sun is reflected off of the earth and onto the moon creating a glow around the shadowed portion of the moon. In my piece, Earthshine, I tried to emulate that contrast of shadow and light by using extreme register and dynamic contrasts with contrasts of dissonance and consonance and tempo. Originally written for tenor steel pan and bass clarinet in 2016, I re-worked the piece with vibraphone for wider accessibility in 2018.
Performance: New Music on the Bayou summer 2018; 5/31/18; by Scot Humes (bass clarinet) and Oliver Molina (vibraphone)
