ICA New Music Weekend 2021: Performing and Writing for Electroacoustic Clarinet

Performing and Writing for Electroacoustic Clarinet

Clarinetist Christopher Mothersole and Composer Jenni Brandon


The workshop is intended to serve as a guide for both clarinetists and composers to integrate clarinet performance with digital effects. American clarinetist Chris Mothersole will discuss the basics of using some of the main types of effects, specifically using guitar pedals, and demonstrate examples of notation used in works from several different composers. A recent collaboration with composer Jenni Brandon has created a commissioning consortium for a new work for solo clarinet with two different types of delay, to be premiered in late 2021. While she is unable to attend the weekend’s festivities, Jenni is excited for this opportunity to share with performers and other composers her experience of writing for electroacoustic clarinet for the first time. In this workshop, she will present a pre-recorded talk explaining the creative process and how digital effects have opened up the sound color possibilities of a single-line instrument.

When: 10/16/2021 | 1:00 pm
