    "Inebriation" explores the experience of drunken nights through the use of microtones, multiphonics, and other extended techniques on the clarinet.

    uniE603 "To Dust" for String Quartet
    "To Dust" represents a culmination of my thoughts and reflections on death. I began the piece as a filter for the grief I was experiencing when I was informed that my good friend’s young brother, whom I had shared many experiences with died in a tragic accident. A few months later, a young man I attended high school with suddenly passed away to everyone’s surprise. Finally, on February 20th, 2015, my father suddenly passed away in his sleep from a heart attack. The piece is ultimately dedicated to him, as he was and continues to be my main musical influence and inspiration. The piece begins with a melodic fragment that continues to punctuate the various textures presented. The melody begins to take form and then resolves into a small chorale tune designed to represent a triumph over grief, sorrow, and ultimately death.

    uniE603 "Ritual" for Solo Bb Clarinet (2014)
    "Ritual" depicts a type of ancient dance performed in a desolate, desert-like place to bring rain to the Earth. Using quarter-tone runs and multiphonics, primitive sounds are used to summon a storm, which starts with light rain depicted by key clicks, and becomes more chaotic as the motive continues to change. performed by Grant Jahn performed on October 8th, 2014 Katzin Concert Hall ASU School of Music Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts #audio #clarinet #solo #clarinet #contemporary #classical #extended #technique #performance #ASU #school #of #musicWW
