Abstract

Clarinet and Shadow is a musical composition for clarinet and electronics. In the piece, live electronics pitch shift the sound of the clarinet to create harmonies and add the sound of an artificial instrument. The electronics are the clarinet's shadow: unreal, always there, and tied to its movement.

Comments

This composition and the essay, “'The Theory is Not Yet Music': An Analysis of Pierre Schaeffer’s Etude aux allures” together constitute the author’s dissertation but are otherwise unrelated.
